    Hi all, I have an LG Stylo 4 running Android 9. I have Cricket Wireless and use a data connection. i've set my DNS to cloudflare.

    I changed the password on my primary Google account, the one my phone is using by default, and received no prompt to log in to my phone again as I would expect. What could be causing this?

    I factory reset my phone to use a different Google account, just in case.

    Possibly related: Signing in on my laptop, the two-factor notification from Google showed my phone under its generic(?) name "LMsomethingsomething" rather that "Stylo 4", several times. Google still only listed the one device and it also appeared under this name when plugged in to my laptop, (elementary os) so I wrote it off at the time.

    Is my phone compromised, and if so, what to do? I'm very concerned about this.

    Let me know if more/what kind of detail may help in answering. Thanks for taking the time to read.
