Hello ive been checking on my "recent activity" and i see a lot of unsuccessful login attempts from other countries like south africa, america, china, netherlands etc. every a couple of days and twice perday, I have 2FA so my account's probably safe

But who are they? where do they come from? Is my computer infected by a virus? Im just curious whats happening
I want to prevent these Unsuccessful attempts because they make me worry everyday

Thanks

    Have you login with your account on other device?
    From what you explained, it might be one or few people who are using VPN.
    Try update your Windows and update your Anti-Malware software and run a full system scan.
    If everything was fine, then change your password and see if the problem persist?
