Have you ever given out your password accidentally to someone and then noticed something fishy with your account? Well, Google – the internet giant has found a solution to this. You can see all the devices which have logged into your account from past twenty eight days. So, in case you ever suspect that someone may be accessing your account without your consent, you can log in immediately and identify any unauthorized access from mobile devices and/or computer.
We all know that Google had previously allowed Android users to see which devices are connected and syncing with their account. But, this new tool detects all access from a multitude of platforms and devices including iPads and iPhones, and PCs and Macs. But the thing is, it just won’t reveal when they logged in last or from which place they logged in. like for example, just imagine that you are a resident of New York. In case someone is logging into your account from U.K, you can get to know that someone has been accessing your account but you will not be able to identify from where they accessed.
Now, let us take that you have found that someone has been sneaking into your account. At times like this, you can just use the ‘Secure your account’ link at the top of the page which will enable you to change your password. You could also update your recovery information, check account permissions and disable access for certain apps. Even better news is that you can even click on the device to remove account access from it remotely.
In case you are still not satisfied with this, you could take one step further and enable the two step verification which means that, along with the password, you will require a code to access your Google account. His code can be sent to you through a voice call or even a text message. Click here to view the device which have been logging into your account.
