Why Gmail and Linkedin says there is an intrusion on my profiles when freedome is activated ?

F-secure Freedome, OS Microsoft 8, Firefox browser or Thunderbird mail manager.

 

Hi there,

 

It's the second time gmail freezes my account and aks for a second identification (code by sms or on an email adress) saying someone in the USA "knows my password".

The date and time given correspond to my own attempt.

 

The main question is: why this occurs ?

The second one -pure curiosity- is why in the US when my localisation is in Europe ?..

 

Thanks !

    Hi yakalex,

     

    Based on your query, were you using a US virtual location during the corresponding time?

    Regarding your second question, could you please brief us as to which localisation you were referring to?

    Hi Laksh,

     

    I was virtually located in Paris, France. I've read the post on the localisation troubles. Still, it happened twice, and each time I was located in the same place in the US for gmail: would it be gmail's server localisation ?

  • Hi,

     

    Really sorry to reply so late. Really busy lately, professionnaly speaking.

     

    I assume you're right and there is nothing to do about this. No matter, it's just a little minute to waste for that. I was mainly curious.

     

    Thanks !
