This week Google released a new security tool it hopes will help users “stay a step ahead of any bad guys,” Eran Feigenbaum, director of security for Google Work, wrote in a blog post.
The tool, called the Devices & Activity dashboard, shows a list of devices currently logged into your Google account that have been active within the past 28 days. If you see anything suspicious, like an unauthorized computer, Google will let you easily change your password and account name from the new dashboard.
Considering the increased focus on data security and concerns about hacking, a tool like this is useful. However, it bears repeating that if you want to increase the security of your online accounts, you should activate two-step verification.
