|Adsense Login Verification|
Opera mini & desktop related

Hi there, not sure if this is happening to any of you.
I constantly check my Adsense daily earnings, by cellphone (Java Opera mini), by Tablet (Android Opera Mini) and Desktop (Firefox, Opera). But this week when on my tablet I was asked to enter a captcha for security reasons, then on my desktop I was asked to confirm my previously confirmed cellphone and to enter a confirmation code.
Really odd because I don't check as often as 3 months ago (I used to do it daily at least 2 times per day and one at night). I'm still wondering why Google won't release an official app (I don't feel like entering my credentials on third party android apps)
*In case somebody didn't know Opera Mini uses a sort of proxy servers so it appears as if you were checking from another country, still this never meant a problem in the past.

while i cant say i have tried it on opera, i have used it on my ipad via safari,firefox,and skyfire. and never had this issue before. im also unsure if it was legit or not but i thought i have seen a adsense app for apple devices the other day.

There is no official AdSense app for phone or tablet. The only thing they've released is an extension for Chrome (and it's kind of buggy)
You can get third party apps, but ... you have to hand over your login credentials to use them, and you may or may not want to do that. If I wanted to break into a bunch of Google accounts, I can't think of a better way to try it than to release an app that captured the login credentials.
I have seen that message before, explorador. Google is just getting more vigilant in policing the security. This is not a bad thing in my opinion. If someone appears to log in to my account from East Elbonia, I want Google to verify it, even if it's me going through a proxy.
I've put all my important Google accounts (and client Google accounts) on two-step authentication. It's a PITA but it's a lot easier than it used to be, thanks to the smartphone app that gives you the verification numbers, and it's one more layer of security.

@nut, ah okay i wasn't too sure myself since it might of been a ad related thing i saw, it was an app with the word "sense" something like payment sense,so my apologies for that. as for that note, i too would love to have an adsense app official from google as well, while im not TOO concerned with having data compromised while signing in, it'd be safe to assume an official app would take nearly all the risks of data being read by a 3rd party.
