    Hi
    All you knowledgeable folk out there please explain. Every now and then ( and this has happened with 3 different Samsung phones A20 A3 and another) gmail has sent me a security alert stating that a new Linux device has accessed my account when I have logged in. It's definitely me but how can this be??
    I have had all my personal details compromised my bank account accessed and the most recent is a casino account with my surname and 666 on the end .....creepy.
    I didn't set it up. Am tearing my hair out I want to get rid of all my android and switch to Apple.
    But apart from that is this Linux thing normal ??
    P.s am not really sure what Linux is ....an operating system sort of !!!

    Your Samsung phones were all running an Android operating system, not Linux. If something like your Google account has been compromised, you need to address your online Google account. Change your password and set up 2-step verification:
    https://myaccount.google.com/u/0/security?hl=en

    It makes no difference how many phones you change to or if you switch to an iPhone, when someone else has access to your Google account you're simply giving them access to every phone you change to when you set up that phone with your compromised account. Regaining and securing your online account is the primary objective.
