Unexpected Alert E-mail Regarding Account Log In

I logged into my account from a different state, and I received an alert that this happened. Is this something new that you're doing?

When you log into the Manager from a new IP address, meaning one you haven't logged in from before, you're now sent an alert. This is part of our security process to make sure you know where the logins to your account are coming from, so that your account can be protected.

If you do see a suspicious login from an IP you don't recognize, please let us know right away so that we can look into it for you. Below are guides that discuss other security measures that are available for your account.
