I have a Galaxy s10 and I noticed that there was a nexus 5 logged into my google accounts.  I logged all devices out and changed my passwords.  A couple of days later I saw that the nexus had logged in after I had changed my passwords.  When I was on my phone I saw that the nexus was logged into my account.  I tried to locate the nexus and after google asked me to log into my account under the LG Nexus name it said "This device"?  WHAT?

Thanks for sharing this.  I was on the verge of changing password when I saw your post because thinking someone has logged into my account on another phone got me so worried.  My phone is a Samsung Note 9 and I'll monitor the situation to see if it repeats.

Same here, S10 showing as LG Nexus 5 suddenly since this morning?!? First I was prompted to reinput password, which I did. And then I saw the Nexus. Was totally freaked out.

After many password changes and observing my Google account, it indeed seemed to be my phone.

I've had the phone for months, never a problem.  WTF?

Thanks for the post. Will help me sleep better :-)

Same here.  My Samsung Galaxy S7 has become a LG Nexus 5.  And yes, I changed my passwords. 😡

Same here, i have a S10 and shows an additional LG Nexus 5.
I can't use "Find my Phone" in Google Home, because says that isn't the phone that I have linked to the speaker.

That's very odd. Maybe you need to reset it.

This is correct. My new Note 10 plus was also registered incorrectly as an LG Nexus 5. The IP address was correct and the time that I registered my new phone matched. There is nothing to worry about here - just ensure the IP is correct and make note of the time that you linked the phone to your Google account.

Hi. I've found something: when I sign in to google account with Firefox (V.68.3.0), after that I see than nonexistent device (LG Nexus 5) has signed in google account. When I sign out nonexistent device from account management, Firefox require login/password after attempt to do anything with google account.
I've tried to clean data and to force close for Firefox app. But, after sign in to google account with cleaned Firefox, I can see new nonexistent device (with "Android" name), which has signed in google account.
For Chrome I did not see that side-effect. Please, check somebody for these behavior of Firefox. Perhaps it normal for that app.

I can confirm that I also signed into Google via Firefox and had this same issue. Thanks for reminding me I did this!
