Google has provided any user with a boost in the battle to protect your information online.
It's very likely you have a Google account of some sort so seeing when & how your accounts have been accessed is a great way to check for suspicious activity.
"Google’s Dashboard for Devices and Activity" now makes it easy to see a complete list of any and all devices that have gained access to your accounts in the past 28 days, including those devices that are still logged in.
When possible, they will also include generalized location info to help you determine authorized devices from suspicious ones.
If you see any unusual devices or access, there is a link to take steps to secure your account with a password change.
Even when you don't see anything unusual, taking the extra step of following the ‘Secure your account’ link at the top is wise.
This option reviews 5 ways to better secure your accounts including a display of all those apps, websites & any devices that currently have access to your accounts.
