Starting the end of last week, I have made numerous calls about this issue. I am using a Windows 10 laptop to access my AOL EMAIL. I am continually getting a message that there is unusual activity on my account and I have to get a code sent to my phone that I then enter into AOL login to get into my email. There is NO unusual activity on my account. The DEVELOPERS need to see why this is happening all of a sudden. It's a BUG!
If there's something unusual about your sign in or recent activity, we'll ask you to go through another verification step after you've entered the correct password. This helps protect your account from unauthorized access. You may be prompted to get a verification code on your AOL app, recovery phone number, or recovery email address for any of the following reasons:
AOL notices suspicious account activity.
You're using an unfamiliar browser or device.
You're traveling away from your usual location.
You sign in while using a VPN or a proxy server.
You've logged in with a private or incognito window.
There are many attempts to sign in with incorrect passwords.
The "First time signing in from this device" message appears.
