gmail_pretty-100227837-largeYour Gmail account probably contains some sensitive information—emails from your friends and family members, information about accounts for other services, candid pictures, you name it.

First, log into your Gmail account from your computer’s Web browser. Once you get to your inbox screen, scroll to the bottom, and look for the link labelled “Details” in the lower-right corner. (Look closely: It’s a small link. We won’t judge if you need a magnifying glass.)

Click the link, and you’ll get a pop-up window that shows the last 10 times someone accessed your Gmail account, along with how they accessed it (through a browser, an email app, and so on), their IP address, and when they access it. If something looks fishy, you’ll want to change your password as soon as humanly possible.

While you’re at it, you may want to turn on two-factor authentication for your Google account and give yourself an extra layer of protection.

What’s that? You don’t have your IP address memorized? Don’t feel bad—most of us don’t. One way around this is to visit at locations where you frequently use your computer (at home, at work, at the coffee place you frequent, and so on)—or check your IP address whenever you connect to a new network—and store those in a text document or something.
