I'd expect that sort of msg from google in response to a botnet or ddos attack?

Sometimes, when you search very simlair search queries often, or those oftenly used by bots, you see this message.

Is it happening on every search no matter what you put?

Google search works fine on my iPhone 4. It must be related to what you are searching for over a period of time, assuming you are getting that far.

That message comes up when Google get a lot of traffic from an IP address or a range of IP addresses which may be symptomatic of a DOS attack. Sometimes these automated protections produce false positives, I've seen it before on a PC. Usually it will clear after a while.

It will be worth recording the IP addresses that cause it.


Save the below link as a bookmark, whenever you see the message go to that bookmark and make a note of the IP address.  You can then send the IP address(es) to giffgaff, they will be able to contact Google and get the IPs whitelisted.


This link shows your current IP address as presented to the Google (and any other) servers at that time
