    After logging in a Google account or play store I usually then remove Google account until needing again. This is to prevent incidental purchases and so on.

    I logged in Gmail from Chrome browser app for something that required it then when I tried to add Google account on the android not browser this time, it won't let me. Message:

    Your account wasn't added. Try again

    I tried 3 different Gmail's all come with same message. I tried restarting android, Clear storage, force stop on Apps>Google,Google Play Store, Google Play services (puzzle shaped icon) and still the same! Disabled security patter but this is used when you try to remove Google acc not when you add

    I am trying not to Factory reset as it opens work to reinstall lots of things...

    Reset app settings tried too.

    Is there a system file in the android to ADB erase such credentials I've no idea what is causing this

    Guys, I'm experiencing exactly the same just now, after a factory reset. I trie to sign in and get "your account wasn't added try again". Was in a chat with google support agent, the dumbest creature I've basically met, so no help there...

    Do you've got any progress?
