  1. Very odd Issue during TWO-STEP Authentication


    I DID NOT KNOW HOW TO CLASSIFY THIS!!

    I used 2 step verification while logging into my Google account (which is my Microsoft account). As I authenticated, I got a pop up on my phone as a security warning asking if I just logged in via my LG Nexus 5 phone. The problem is I have a Galaxy S 9. The timing is correct, as far as the log in, the IP address and the city is correct, and I have never had anything like this happen before. Should I be concerned? I hope these details will help.


    I am using HP laptop in the chrome browser to log in. I am holding my S9, which I hit YES, which allowed my browser to authenticate. Then immediately I received the pop up. I do not have an LG Nexus 5 or any LG products, or anyone in my home.


    I am using Microsoft Launcher which I have been using for a bit now and hasn't done this before.

    I attached a pic.

    That's what the auto setting will do since you're over the 1333 mark it jumps to the next step which isn't listed or officially supported I assume by that ram.

    At this point though I would suggest dropping the multi one step or .5 so that we can get something stable and possibly take the heat issue out of the picture for now.
