Google Gmail - Suspicious sign-in attempt prevented

I just upgraded Freedome to a full year subscription on my android mobile and windows 10 laptop within 5 minutes of each other.  With e-mail programs running on both devices, I get e-mails from Google saying  "Suspicious sign-in attempt prevented"  This happens on both my Gmail accounts on both devices with Freedome VPN installed


Is this becuse of Freedome VPN ?  and what can I do about it ?




PII: removed screenshot revealing email

    Hi @archer_oldie 


    It is only normal to receive such email when you login from a new location and since Google detected that you are doing so from an unusual server, because you have Freedome turned on, hence that email.


    You may want to verify from that email again that the server is the same as the node you were connected to at the stated time. If it's not, then we suggest you change your password.
