What is ‘Last account activity’?
Last account activity shows you information about recent activity in your mail. Recent activity includes any time that your mail was accessed using a regular web browser, a POP client, a mobile device, a third-party application etc. Google will list the IP address that accessed your mail, the associated location, as well as the time and date. The new service is more like an extension to Google’s dashboard, ,which already gives users an overview of all their Google accounts and services in use – it just puts more data behind them.
Bigtime YouTubers will also get details on their video views, most popular uploaded video and where their viewers are located. If you think you are only a moderate youtube user, you maybe in for a shock. Seeing is believing Google’s Account Activity tool will display exact number and you know that old saying the math doesn’t lie.
Users can opt to receive the reports by e-mail. Those who choose to receive the reports will receive a link directing them to sign in to their accounts for a summary of their online activity. In addition, you’ll be able to see the places you’ve visited and tracked through Google Latitude; stats and trends in the emails you’ve sent and received; and the types of searches you’ve conducted, along with your top queries.
You can sign up for the new Account Activity dashboard here.
