How to fix the QuickShortcutMaker and Google account bug

Depending on the version of Google Account Manager you have installed, QuickShortcutMaker will display an error when logging in. This poses a problem for those trying to unlock a device by adding a new Google account. According to our extensive tests, the solution is to install an older version of Google Account Manager.

If you have a fairly recent phone, Google Account Manager is usually unavailable, as it is an obsolete component not included in Android's latest versions. However, if you need to log in from QuickShortcutMaker, you will have no choice but to install it. If you search through the Internet, you will easily find the Google Account Manager 6.0.1 version, which is the one that will help you solve the access error.
