Just started appearing when using wi-fi at home? Been fine all morning, what’s that all about? Had to switch to 4g.

Nothing to do with search problems.

Your IP address had been marked as performing a malicious attack as there had been a lot of failed logins from it. This doesn't necessarily mean it was you as many of the IP addresses are shared and re-allocated and also the larger ISPs often redirect things through a shared proxy server so we see many people using the same address.

We never permanently block IP addresses, so things like this are normally transient to stop attacks and will usually sort themselves out after a few hours.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
