Between your smartphone, desktop at work, tablet, laptop at home and whatever else in between, keeping track of the devices your Google account is signed into can be a hassle. Next time you notice strange activities occurring with one of them, though, you can see where it's coming from and remotely take a look at what's going on from a browser. How? With the Devices and Activity dashboard that shows off a list of the last platforms where your account's been active in the past 28 days, and what gizmos you're currently signed into as well. As Google tells it, you can even change your password and take steps to secure your account with it too. Officially, it's intended to make the lives of IT managers easier, but we know at least one person who'll probably appreciate this new bit of functionality.
