Google Recent Activity, a way to know when and where your account has been access


Google Recent Activity is a fairly new Google service that allow users to know each time a login activity is registered. Even though is new, is not an original idea since Gmail still has this same feature, but apparently it limits itself to the mail account, and not the account in general: “… provides information about the last activity on this mail account and any concurrent activity”.

It has default items that will show for each activity, such as country, OS/Platform, browser, IP, and approximate location (based on IP). If I recall correctly (only happened to me once), whenever you have an unknown activity Google will send you a mail notifying you, offering a “Close all sessions”, and immediately will recommend you to change your password.
