i.e. when you get the email that says "suspicious activity was detected and sign-in was blocked."
Do they see "password incorrect" or do they see "your sign in was blocked?"

  • Do you have enabled two-step verification?

1 Answer 1


Just like when you enter your password incorrectly, a potential hacker sees a "Wrong Password. Try again" message.

Google Sign-In Wrong Password Message

  • This it's fine as a partial answer, I think. There are other cases as when the hacker found out the password, but fails to pass the 2-step verification.
