I have received this message a couple of times in the last month.....never been locked out of my account - is it legit? if you hit the button (review recent activity) it takes you to your log in page. Have never gone further than that.

Look at the header on the message to see where it came from and NEVER EVER click links in messages that you are uncertain of. In fact never click links in messages at all. Enter the address into your browser instead.

The fact that you can still log-in normally using your normal mode of access suggests a phishing message.
