Google is aware of this and the company has announced that it will block logging from embedded browsers starting in June. According to the company, "MITM interrupts communication between users and Google in real time in order to collect user data and log in. As can not be determined the difference between legitimate registration and MITM attacks on these platforms, Google will block the built-in browser log for June.
