Google has introduced a new feature known as Account Activity. This activity report will allow users to get periodical reports and updates regarding usage patters of Google products. Google’s activity report can help you in a number of ways such as how many emails have you sent and received over a particular report, what are your top Google searches, recently visited places, web history and more.
If you ever wanted such detailed statistics, then you sign up for the service but the report may take a few days to generate. After the report is complete, you will receive a link in the email to a password-protected report page. You’ll need to enter your login credentials to access your report.
Below is a screenshot of how activity report looks like:
Account activity can present you more details about your usage pattern, complete with statistics. It also helps you to take steps to protect your Google account. For example, if you notice sign-ins from countries that you haven’t been to and from platforms that you’ve never used, then you can change your password immediately. Also you can sign-up for extra level of security by 2-step verification.
Google activity report is a superb addition to Google’s range of products. Plus, its like analytics but for Google-only products.
