Speed Dial Additions.

  • Sometime this morning between 10 am and 1.30pm this afternoon, two additions were made to my Speed Dial. One was for AirBnB and the other for the French shop FNAC. Now, I've never visited them and certainly never added them to Speed Dial, so can anyone explain to me how these suddenly appeared without any input from me?

    On a similar matter, my Gmail account was accessed from France by someone using a Hauwei mobile phone. This resulted in my entire Gmail account being terminated due to some unknown (to me) violations of terms of service. Nobody has EVER had access to my passwords and my PC is completely secure, or at least I thought it was.

    Given that my only browser is Opera, then is there some kind of security flaw here that either Opera aren't aware of, or are not talking about? That's my Speed Dial been added to and my Gmail account been accessed and the only connection that I can see between the two events is Opera.

  • @popinjay01 Partnership entries being added to Speed Dial is somewhat commom as the several posts about it around here may reveal.

  • @popinjay01 Regarding the Gmail issue, that I think is unrelated and should be discussed in a different topic, how do you know that nobody tried to access your account?
    Have you ever used the VPN? It may cause sites to think that you are in another place.
