Re: Google gibberish?
said by peterboro:That's entirely possible. I got such a message from amazon, a few years ago. It was actually a message reminding me of the procedure to recover from lost password, but I figure that it must have been prompted by break-in attempts.
I don't think that the correct password was used as much as this appears an automated response to a threshold of login attempts.
I changed the email address I was using for amazon, to one less likely to be guessed (an address with a randomish string in it). Since that change, I have not had any problems.
