  1. Suspicious Activity On My GMAIL Account Question


    So earlier this morning while working with the same VPN (Private Internet Access) I have for years I logged out and switched to another server (Seattle, US) which I thought I had used before. Everything was good. Shut down when I was finished and now several hours later when I try to log into that same gmail acct I get that suspicious activity and am asked to create a new password. Is this legit?

    >Any strange logins etc Google normally sends you an email to your Gmail account.

    Right, but I can't log in to see if they have sent me anything. The message I am getting is to create a new password and I guess I was asking if that screen shot that I provided is that how GOOGLE would normally do it? Just ask you to create a new password because they think there has been suspicious activity on the account?

    EDIT: I just bit the bullet and followed GOOGLE's suggestion to change my password. I'll probably do a security checkup just to make sure I am not broadcasting to the world.

    Gmail suspicious activity alert?

    Gmail accounts only get hacked because the user has weak security settings.
