Check for unfamiliar activity

On your "Recently used devices" page, look for these signs that someone else is using your account.

  • You don't recognize a device. Make sure these situations don't apply:
    • You started using a new device.
    • You used someone else's device or a public computer, like at a library.
    • You recently reset your device to factory settings. The device could still show up.
  • You weren't in a location at the time listed. Make sure these situations don't apply:
  • You don't remember using your account at a certain date and time.
    • If you have apps that connect to your Google Account, like Gmail or Calendar, the times could be more recent than you remember.
  • You see a different browser (like Chrome or Safari) than the one you normally use.

Help secure your account

If any activity looks unfamiliar or you're not sure if it was you, follow the steps to secure your account and change your password.

After you change your password, all other devices will be removed from your account.
