Google account sign in location

  • Hey guys. I recently downloaded Opera Mini for WP and today I signed in to my google account on Google.com and I checked my account activity and this appeared: http://imgur.com/lMID9Sm. I checked up on the IP and the ISP for the IP is "Opera Software ASA". I'm quite paranoid that this has happened. If this was me logging in, why was it in Kenya and not my true location (Kent, England)?

  • The alternative would be the Gulf of Guinea or expose the true location of server farms as a slide hack. 🐧

  • Opera Mini uses proxy servers. The location "you" are (aka, the proxy server) varies depending on where you hit Opera, and where Opera has their servers.

  • Note: if from some reason you got the impression that g account was hacked and the password is changed because something 'is not right' then with Opera Mini after login the google page will look like https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/40695?hl=en&ctx=ch_ServiceLoginAuth and that's not the answer needed. 🙂

  • Sir'Agreed to it.

  • When you use Opera Mini, you're connected to Opera servers, which download websites you want, compress and transform them, and at the end they are sent to your phone. So the idea is similar to proxy servers.

    IP adress on the screenshot you attached is in fact one of Opera Mini servers, so you shouldn't be worried. I don't know why it's detected as Kenya, you'd better ask Google.
