Do you think somebody is accessing your Gmail account without your knowledge? If you suspect any suspicious activity, then checking the recent activity of your Gmail account will help keep your account safe.

You can monitor recent activity on your account. First, log into your Google Gmail account.

Gmail Activity 1

Once you log in, scroll down to the bottom of your inbox, and click the Details link to see the login activity of your account.

Gmail Activity 2

The last login and the number of places you are logged into will be displayed in a nice report including the Browser Type, Location/Country, and IP address and the date and time.

Gmail Activity 3

How to Sign out all sessions on your Gmail account

The Activity report will display all concurrent sessions as well as the option to Sign out all other users on your account. Simply click the button Sign out all other sessions to force all sessions out of your account.

Gmail Activity 4

If you want to change the Alert Preferences, scroll down and click on the Change link under Alert preferences.

Gmail Activity 5

Select Show An Alert On Unusual Activity (recommended.) If Google suspects any unusual activity on your Gmail account, it will show an alert on top of your Inbox and will advise you to change your password.

Gmail Activity 6

To further improve the security of your Gmail account, you can enable Two Factor Authentication for your Google account.

    Don’t recognize this activity?
    If you didn’t recently receive an error while trying to access a Google service, like Gmail, from a non-Google application, someone may have your password.
