Safety: Login From a New Device Notification

Tawnya -

Your safety on Handshake is of the utmost importance to us, so we have created a notification that will be sent when there is a login on your account that raises concern. 

When you login to your Handshake account, we recognize your IP address, the device you're using, and the operating system and browser version. If there are changes to those aspects of your login (a change in browser or device, or a change to your IP address) at your next login, then we will send an email notification to your account email. 

The email message received will display the following content:
