Advertising on craigslist - google locked out my email accounts


Recommended Posts

3 years ago I placed an ad on craigslist using my iPhone mobile data while in Flagstaff, AZ. 

google then locked me out of my gmail account citing "suspicious activity" 

There was No Way I could log back in with the iPhone. 

So I called their customer service and got right through and all was resolved in 5 minutes I could access my email account again.

Har har har Juuust kidding I made that up. I wasn't laughing at the time.

Fortunately back at camp I was able to use a PC laptop on a wifi connection through a couple screens I've never seen before and trick google and access my account again. 

Then I could log in ok on the iPhone. 

Anyways - I have been a bit reluctant to place an ad on CL ever again... 

Has anyone experienced this? 

Is there a sure fire prevention? (besides selling through other ways?)
