I did a web-based login to my Gmail account today and got this red warning banner at the top that said there was suspicious activity; my account was accesses from a suspicious IP number.
I looked at the Gmail access activity report and found these two IP #’s 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206 both of which I did an IP whois look up and found that one belongs to Motorola, Inc. in Sunnyvale CA and the other to Motorola – Network Computing Services in Scottsdale, AZ. ( I live in VA) Access type was listed as “Unknown”
The trigger dates where on the days I was setting up Gmail accounts on my new Droid X. I was also installing other App’s too.
Why would “Motorola” in CA and AZ be logging in to my Gmail account??? Gmail should have logged a Verizon IP number and not one’s from Motorola.
I do have several Gmail and one Google App’s account configured on the Droid X, but to date only one of the Gmail accounts has warned me about suspicious activity.
The activity logs on the other accounts only say Browser and IMAP access like they should from my home PC and Verizon IMAP 97.xxx.xxx.xxx and nothing from Motorola.
The Gmail account in question is used on the Droid X for Google Maps, Latitude, iGoogle, Google Voice, etc.
So I am not clear as to why “Motorola” accessed my Gmail account, which then triggered Gmail’s unusual activity warning.
