WARNING: this email is not from Ecwid. This is so called phishing email (explained below). Please do not click any links there and remove it from your inbox.

If you clicked this link in the email and entered your login and password in the fake login form, please go to https://my.ecwid.com/cp/ -> Account settings page and change your password. Please change the password for your Ecwid login email as well. You can do it in your email account.

What are phishing emails

Phishing emails attempt to obtain sensitive information such as usernames, passwords often for malicious reasons, by masquerading as a trustworthy entity.

In this case the phishing email contained a link to a third-party resource and opened the page that looked similar to Ecwid login page, and prompted to login to your control panel.

If you received a phishing e-mail to your gmail account, you should report the phishing attempt to the Gmail team: click the down arrow next to Reply at the top-right of the message pane, and select Report Phishing to let Gmail know the message is not legitimate.

Gmail team provides some instructions on how to recognize 'spoofing' or 'password phishing' e-mails and protect your data.
