Gmail has Added More Security Features

Now-a-days, online email service has become very important part in people’s lives. Whether there is a professional person or a student, email services played a vital role in their lives and that’s why it is also important to secure these services.

Gmail.com, popular web based email service has now integrated another security feature, which detects suspicious account activities and alerts users about this. Recently, Gmail announced this new feature in a blog post. The Gmail team explains this new feature as:

They will also alert you by posting a warning message saying, “Warning: They believe your account was last accessed from…” along with the geographic region that they can best associate with the access
To find when to display this message, their automated system matches the relevant IP address, logged per the Gmail privacy policy, to a broad geographical location. While they do not have the capability to find the specific location from which an account is accessed, a login appearing to come from one country and occurring a few hours after a login from another country may trigger an alert.

Always, you can see their account access details from the “Last account activity > Details” link at the bottom. Though, this feature depends upon the IP address records only and in general, not capable of detecting unauthorized access.

This is really a good news for gmail users, is it?
