Interesting. They are stressing in their email that you may backup and download your data at anytime using google takeout. They clearly realize that not giving access to the data was pretty extreme.

They didn't show anything. I don't remember the exact wording but it was like, where do you want us to send the verification text?

I had a cell number associated with my account and the text went there.

Well, they do that to protect themselves in the future, too. This way they can say, "remember back when that whole thing? Yeah, you should now know better we can suspend at any time and you should have been backing up. Not our problem. Peace!"

Glad the folks who felt like they wouldn't ever be able to get out of bed again are getting a reprieve here, but this was mind-numbingly blown out of proportion

What's your point? That humans exaggerate when they're hurt? Welcome to Earth. Have some empathy.

If it doesn't unlock automatically, try filing a request, and it should work right after.
