I had problem with my Twitter account because Kaspersky secure connection connected with UK(virtual location) server. My real location is Greece and Twitter informed me that someone from London try to do login and for this reason my account is locked for security reasons. By the way i closed Kaspersky secure connection and Twitter ask for me to change my password. Do you have any idea for this?

Thank you!
