Imagine my panic this morning when I tried to login to my Google account and I found that my account had been suspended! I tried accessing my blog and found a message saying due to detection of unusual activity my blog had been removed! Now I have frequently read of blogs being removed and it taking ages for them to be restored so I was not a happy bunny.
There was a link to click for help so I clicked and this message came up.
Now being extremely cautious about giving any personal information over the Internet following unexpected requests I pondered a while. I asked Martyn to check whether he could access my blog but he was shown the same message as I had been. So I figured that I had no choice and duly entered my mobile number. Very quickly I received a text message with a six figure number code with which to verify my account which I did.
I was then asked to enter my phone number again and I then received a second verification code which I entered,
With some trepidation I tried to access my blog and hey presto it was back! So if this happens to you I hope sharing my experience will help and sorry if you tried to access my blog when it had gone awol!
Now I really would like to know what the unusual activity was!
