    I received a notification on my phone that changed have been made to my TV.net email and that I needed to sign in. My password doesn't work. Can someone help me?

    I've had a similar notification about a non-Tar Valon gmail address. But for me, it happened the day after my wireless carrier pushed the Android 7 update to my phone. I wonder if they're related?

    I received the same message about one of my Gmail addresses this morning. I haven't had any recent updates to my phone so I'm guessing it's a Gmail thing... (I didn't have any issues with my password though.)

    If anyone can send me the exact message or a screen shot it will help.

    I havnt gotten the message. :D

    I am looking at the back end to see if anything looks fishy.

    I got the message on my phone... I can't screenshot it here, I don't know how. It says Account Action Required, then it says Please Sign In, There's been a change to your Google Account. For your security, sign in again.

    when I attempt to sign in, my password doesn't work.

    When I just went into my tv.net email from my computer, I was able to sign in just fine. My password worked and everything. :scratch

    I'm too dumb to understand what in the world is going on. :\

    It says sync isn't working?

    That's exactly it. Ok, I feel better. I was kinda freaked out and worried about my account being hacked or other accounts being vulnerable.

    Thank you so much.
