Hi friends, Recently I came across this pop up while using search. We have noticed some suspicious activity for this account. Please try your search again later. Can you tell me what this is? Have encountered such a pop up?? Have a nice day/night......

Yes, I have encountered that quite a lot. I was shocked at first, because I was just searching for something then "that" popped up. Then when I tried searching again, it doesn't work anymore. But after a few hours it was fine... Maybe that prevents users from overusing the search engine.

I get this message sometimes too. That's why I stop using the search engine after getting a reward, to avoid any warnings. I think that they don't need to give us such a warning. All they have to do against abusers is stop issuing rewards after a certain number of searches.

yep..its shown after the first reward.. but even if we search less frequently after our first reward they'll show so I hate it for the notification and love it for the reward.... thanks...

Hi sagar: Even if I don't have enough experience on these kind of topics, my first thought would be that your computer probably have a virus or that you have been hacked. So I think it's better that you do something very soon because it might be something wrong happening on your system. Thanks for asking us for this question. Have a nice day. ALVARO.

I got that pop up before. It is just a security measure against abuse of search engine. If you use it too much in a span of 1 hour, the system will issue you a warning. It does not mean much,you can still use the search engine, but not too much in a short period of time. There are some members who used it to gain more credits. To prevent that, the system issues a warning. If you use it like you normally use search engine, you should not have any problem.

Hi zralte: I understand your answer but after reading the question of our friend I still think that it should be something wron in case, our friend sagar, hasn't used the search engine for an hour. At least according to what sagar has written. Thanks for the information. Have a nice day. ALVARO.

since everyone knows that we can earn rewards by using search it doesnt mean that we can use it as often as we can in fact if you try to use search often that message will appear, you can actually read that in mylot FAQ and that if using search frequently it may result to abuse and that you intentionally do it with purpose and that we may only use search for important or natural purposes only like if we really need to search something. they also include that they can canceled your account and forfeit your balance if they find out that you did it intentionally. you can also check it here http://www.mylot.com/o/faq/faq24.aspx
