Google has launched a new ‘Account Activity’ dashboard that allows people to ‘step back and review’ their online activity. This tool requires users to sign up for it and keeps a log of user activity performed on all Google’s products. In a blog post Google explained that this tool will provide users with a password-protected monthly report of their activity.
Google said, “Knowing more about your own account activity also can help you take steps to protect your Google Account. For example, if you notice sign-ins from countries where you haven’t been or devices you’ve never owned, you can change your password immediately and sign up for the extra level of security provided by 2-step verification.”
With this tool, users can know the number of emails they have been sending and receiving and with whom. Their search queries as well as the time they spend logged in from different devices. The dashboard has Gmail, Latitude and search but more services- notable Google+ will be incorporated soon.
