    Default Attempts to access my Google Play Services?

    Most mornings I get a message on my cellphone telling me that someone attempted to access my Google Play Services. Up to now I have ignored the messages,
    firstly because I don't use Google Play Services and secondly why would there be repeated tries to do this whilst I am asleep. I don't know whether accessing
    these 'services' uses the same password as my Google password?

    In short, should I be concerned? What are the risks, if any? Help please!

    Had Similar with one of my Microsoft accounts as well. Always over Night and usually listed as from the Ukraine. You should be able to go into your account and see where from and what's triggering it.

    Changed the password, updated the security options and it Stopped.

    I don't know whether accessing
    these 'services' uses the same password as my Google password?
    YES it uses the exact same password. Anything Google uses the same password on the same account.

    IF you change the password, remember you have to change it to the same one on EVERY device that uses the same account if you want it to work.

    Many thanks (again) wainui, I have changed my Google password, using a much harder one. I will change on each device as per your advice.
    I wonder if these are the same Ukrainian girls that keep wanting to be my friend!
