I'm just checking my mail with gmail and notice a notice at the bottom of the "Inbox" screen saying something like: - "this account is currently being used at another location. address...(IP ***) I can't remember the exact wording or the IP address it showed, but should I be worried? I came back from Majorca on Friday where I was using the public access network, could this be the reason?
Thanks ventad, I've got my two gmail addresses set up to automatically sign me in at the click of a mouse on both my PC and laptop, thought that that was safest since ther was no actual typing of passwords. Didn't do any banking or sign in to other sites whilst away, so what could they get?
It does not matter if it signs in automatically on your own PC it is if you allowed it on a PC in Majorca people can send emails etc from your address and read your emails and then mark as unread. I have used internet cafe's all over and it is supprising how many pc's have peoples usernames and log ins left on the machines because they did not answer NO to saving them when asked.
ventad, I didn't use public PC's, I took my own lappy and used the "hotspot" provided by the Calvia council along the seafront with which I could happily pick up a tenuous connection from my balcony! So there's no residual info on any other PCs. Wish I had noted the IP address that the message showed, could then possibly trace where it was using my account from.
Sorry, crossposted then. >>incase somebody close to you was keylogging<< lol Pardon my mirth, but the place was deserted, the other resident that I bumped into refered to it as a ghost town" but he was yet to see the ghosts!! I'll change my passwords as you say as a precaution and keep an eye out for that message recurring. Would Gmail have a log of the message so that I could request a copy?
Sorry mate, had an appointment at the Dental Hospital& what with the snow it turned into a full afternoon! No, strangely enough, I can access my accounts from both computers simultaneously with no such warnings. Odd innit!
