    Default Sign-in Request for the gallery after upgrade?

    I keep getting this Sign-in Request in my notifications drop down. As for the gallery. It appears that it's going to take me to sync with Picasso and I do not want to use Picasso. Everytime I slide it off the notification drop down it returns. I don't see any setting to disable this in the gallery. Anybody having this problem that's found a solution?

    Well, yes this problem do keeps me appearing to me. what it does is it sync all the photos in the Picasa to my note and the problem is I can't even delete that pictures manually. I have tried going to the view settings select the pictures in device only to be viewed but every time I restart my device it just keep on showing the same i.e. Picasa synchronised picture.

    Sign in and make sure u turn off sync and it works like it use to. All it wants is to validate ur Google for picasa. It won't sync ur naughty photos.

    No dirty pics and NO Picasa. I've had it up to here with Google infiltrating my life. My pictures are mine I don't share on Picasa unless I make it happen. Google is not going to take over my photo life.

    FOUND A POSSIBLE FIX! But am I ever ticked off now! I found this fix for the annoying gallery sign-in request:

    Android: Disable Syncing of Picasa Web Albums to Gallery App | a Tech-Recipes Tutorial

    So, I go into my settings to follow the instructions and to my very UNPLEASANT surprise I find that KitKat reset ALL my sync settings (which I had turned OFF!!!) to ON!!!!!!!!! Every freaking one of them were set to sync.

    I have more than a few choice words for Google right now!!!!!!!! but these are the only ones I can think of at the moment that I can say on a forum board ... how freaking DARE they!!!!!!! I turn these things off for a reason they have NO RIGHT to turn them back on!!!!!! When privacy invasion things like this happen I just want to scream "I want my BlackBerry back!"

    I did follow the instructions for the fix a few minutes ago (and turned off everything from syncing!) so it's too soon to tell if it got rid of that sign-in thing.

    Hope this helps.

    I'm not sure what Picasa is but I've had no issues with my gallery since the ota update. I took lots of pics at an event last night. They're all in my gallery and saved on my sd card. All seems fine
