    I usually get those alerts on using VPNs , as now both Google and Microsoft applied a measure of security to only allow password access to same country , but if you are travelling over you need to do an authentication from an already authorized device they have its mac address stored , in case of VPNs some of these block or change your mac address and country along your ip so may fire such alerts .

    If you are not using one then yes , some cutie in Vietnam has your password some how . They can steal it with ease from android phones via cover up apps so you might want to review your apps .
    I had few attempts on my MS account but I was sure of MS response. Such a simple page from Google looked too simple and could be spoofed easier. That's why I was wondering if it was legit. To be honest, I had same password for couple of years, should have changed it earlier. I access same e.mail from 4 devices. 2 PCs with W10, one Lumia W10 phone (rarely) and Linux also from this PC.

    I use the Google app as my authenticator for google logins.

    If you find 2fa available for any site that you've signed up for, I would take the time to enable it.

    EVERYONE should check all of your email addys for breaches and change passwords occasionally.
