Hi Shelley. Getting an email from Google saying they stopped someone else from signing in to your account is not entirely unusual. Your email address is your login name so if someone wants to attempt to login as you all they have to guess is the password. Which shouldn't be easy. Make sure you've got a strong password set on your account. Something like 'password' isn't great, but [email protected]$sw0rd001! is better.

Apps on your mobile that you didn't install are also not unusual. Your phone comes with preinstalled apps. Some of which can be uninstalled if you don't use them.

When someone is trying to hack your account you will receive a notification. Go for a 2 ways verification process and make sure that you password has alpha-numeric-symbols.
