    Today, I went to McDonald's and I used the Wi-Fi there for some odd reason. But then a password popped up and kept popping up for my password and email account. It was just a simple blue iOS box I wasn't on Safari or anything. So I put it in. I don't know why. It came up twice and I put it in twice.

    Later, I got this message.

    Someone recently tried to use an application to sign in to your Google Account, xxxxxxxxxx@gmail.com. We prevented the sign-in attempt in case this was a hijacker trying to access your account. Please review the details of the sign-in attempt:

    If you do not recognize this sign-in attempt, someone else might be trying to access your account. You should sign in to your account and reset your password immediately.

    But this has never happened before. I'm scared.

    Yea this happened to me before. You should never need to enter any personal info to use a WiFi hotspot. Did you already go ahead and change the password?

    Yes. But I'm scared, my phone has all of my personal information on it. What do they have access to?? Can they see everything?

    There is a chance that the "Someone" was you. You were on a different network than Google normally sees you on. Are/were you in Sugar Land?

    They'd only be able to see what you pass along that connection, not actually get root access to your phone.

    Now if you're jail broken and haven't changed the default SSH password, that's a different story...

    That message is from Google trying to protect your Gmail account. It happens when your email is accessed (or is attempted access) from a different network than usual. It has nothing really to do with someone hacking your iPhone. It is Google being extra protective of access to your Gmail account. For example... if you usually log in from the USA and all of a sudden they start logging attempts from Nigeria to access your account, they block it and send you and email about it.

    I had it happen to me when I went camping in the woods a few months ago and I was roaming on some weird EDGE network out there. The data was SUPER SLOW and I kept getting warnings from Google about BOTH of my Gmail accounts.
