Does anyone know what this means? I just got this from Google.
We have now verified that we are no longer detecting PII being passed to Google from the account(s) under your control.
Thank you for helping to resolve this matter."
I haven't a clue about what they are talking about. What is Pll?
I also received this. I run some checks online and it appears that many others also had received the same message. It seems to be just a bug on their part and nothing to worry about.
I do know that it is referring to my adsense account because they gave me the ID number.
Heck - that sounds scary to me (and I don't know what it is, either).
Here's a link I found online. But I still don't know exactly what it means. Something about your personal identifier:

If I got an e-mail from someone that had a wording like that and that was all it said, I most likely would not bother with replying. If I did reply at all it would be to say 'you are welcome'.
Long story short, (I am not an IA expert) what you presented looks like a phishing attempt. The fact that you are left wondering what it is about is the clue. The folks at google know enough to be clear and concise with their communications, and not leave you wondering. As it reads my guess is that whoever wrote that does not know what PII is either.
Here is what Google has to say about what a PII alert email means
I'm inclined to think it was a phishing attempt too, given what it says and how you received it.
Thanks relache. I almost hope it is phishing. I reviewed the written and video information that you sent me, and though thorough, I think I'm more confused then before. They through a lot of information at you in the video very rapidly, and I think I'll have to watch it 20 times to fully get the idea. Seeing as I never received any emails before with things for me to take action and they are thanking me for resolving the issues, I guess I'm all right.
Marcy, I also read over the link that you sent and it sounds like Google chroma wants you to get PII on people. I'm just going to ignore the whole thing and go on with my life. I agree with the other responses. It is probably phishing. Thanks for all the responses.
It might be a good idea to go into your Google Stats to see if they have sent you any messages. If there is a genuine message, there should be a duplicate there.
