Customer Question
Hello. today I received...

Hello. today I received on my i Mac a pop up apparently from Google suggesting that I update my security check. Seemed sensible so I did. I then spent hours going in circles with Google frequently asking me to change my password. I think I got there but am now concerned that the pop up was not really from Google. Help!

Technician's Assistant: When did you last change your password ***** Apple ID?

Cannot remember. A long time ago

Technician's Assistant: Did you try resetting through Apple's online account reset tool?

Not something I know anything about

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mac Expert to know before I connect you?

Just reassurance that I have not dropped myself in it. The only information I revealed was my e-mail address

What does your google account history shows? If there is a password ***** in the history then it was from Google if not then it wasnt. You can also check locations to confirm.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
