New Android feature offers more security for users

Google released a new feature that notifies Android users of new security events to their account, specifically newly added devices.

When Google users add a new device to their account, these new notifications will appear and ask: “Did you just sign in?”

You can dive deeper into the notification to explore more details of the device. If it was you then you can simply press “Yes, that was me.” If not you can take steps to secure your account. Android users are notified on multiple devices to increase awareness of suspicious activity.
