    I have an older Android phone, HTC Inspire.


    When I'm on wifi and I enter an ATT Hotspot, a white triangle icon will appear. The details say there's a Gmail sign-in error and a dialog box appears, showing my email address and a box for the password. It will NOT accept my password although I'm sure I typed it right. I can press Back and the box will go away, but the triangle icon will stay (unless I restart the phone). My real Gmail app will still accept my password.


    I found some threads of people with the same prob and they said it has to do with Google+ updates, but I don't have that. Plus those threads are two years old.


    This does not happen when I use wifi at other places, like the library.


    Anybody know why this happens? It's shouldn't appear and doesn't even work. In the meantime I'm just going to keep wifi off unless I need to use it.

    The threads I found also mentioned 2-step verification. But I've never used that.
    I've changed nothing recently and suddenly I see this.

    For a while that triangle only appeared when I got on wifi; but just now, it appeared for no reason.
    I had wifi off all day and just now it appeared.

    The only way to clear that icon is to restart the phone.

    Are there generic ways of clearing all notification icons? I have Android 2.3.5 by the way.
    If you have to root, I'm not going to bother.
