Google has announced an "Account Activity" feature to let owners of Google accounts see what they've been doing and where on the Internet they've been going.
Google account owners who sign up for the feature will receive a monthly password-protected report with information about their signed-in use of Google services, webpronews.com reported Wednesday.
The report will include statistics on e-mails sent and received, top search queries, and authentication information such as the number of connected sites, apps and services.
The Account Activity report will also include a list of account sign-in locations, browsers, and platforms, Google said.
This can alert a user if their Google account has been accessed from somewhere they've never been or from a device they don't own. It also will allow them to take action such as changing their password on contacting Google for assistance, webpronews.com said.
