based on a FEELING you accuse somebody else of emotional judgement
The irony is so thick!

I am arguing from the definition of a password auth.
A password is the only key that distinguishes myself from somebody else.
IP is not even an attribute of MYSELF.
I bear no responsibility for the IPs assigned to my pub interface.
And Google has no information about my password's local handling
they simply have no access to any aspect of me handling my password.
...hopefully, they have not.

And, by the way, i DO travel, just like most people.

what do you mean "safe"?
and why do you think they have a right to make any assumptions
about any traffic that contains a legitimate password.

> Most users probably only log in from a few IPs in a discrete geographic area

wrong.
