  1. Hey guys, no matter what I do I can't get rid of this "warning" bar (image attached) in my Gmail account. I've tried changing my password and went through the whole list of things Google told me to do. but the warning remains.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Hi
    Don't know if you have fixed it? In Google chrome go to the three dots right corner, choose settings, notifications, turn off. Worked for me.

    Certainly realize that the warning just might be true - - someone is attempting to compromise your account.
    Obvious actions are to change your password AND to activate two factor authentication.

    It's gone now. Google took the warning away after a waiting period of two weeks. But thank you for your suggestion my friend.

    It's not gone...you've simply hidden it.
