    I have a Samsung Galaxy J6, and in the past couple of hours it has started making loud notifications saying "email sign-in failed." What worries me is I haven't been trying to sign into my hotmail at all - not for months, in fact.

    When I try and sign in on my computer, I can get into my account just fine. I'm too scared to try signing in on my phone, though, in case I accidentally let someone in (I don't know if that's even something I can do; I'm a technophobic cavewoman who only just got a smartphone this year). So why is it doing this?

    Is someone trying to hack me? Is this an error with the phone that I have to fix? Do I need to call somebody? Should I change my password? I want these notifications to stop, and I want to know if someone is trying to get into my account or whether this happens to everyone's phone. Please help me!

    That's the only account you have on any email app? (If GMail is there, and it has your gmail account in it, it may be trying to log into the gmail server - and I've had intermittent problems with that in the past dew days.)

    No, it's not.

    Is someone trying to hack me?
    Most likely not.

    Is this an error with the phone that I have to fix? Do I need to call somebody? Should I change my password?
    Probably "no" to all of them.

    I want these notifications to stop
    Check your gmail app, to make sure you don't have your Google account in there, and the phone set to check email every so often.
