Logging in to your email account from a computer or a phone/tablet that’s not yours is something that we all need to do sometimes. The only problem here is that since we are not used to logging out on our own computers, we tend to forget signing out from our emails (or Gmails since this post is about that) here too.
When it’s a friend we can trust him/her, nevertheless there is still always a chance of your private messages being seen and disclosed. Here’s what Gmail users can do to protect their accounts in case such a mishap happens.
Step 1: Log in to your Gmail account.
Step 2: On the inbox, scroll to the bottom of the interface. On the right side you will see your last account activity and a link reading Details. Click on this link.
Step 3: A new window will show up and show basic details about few of your login sessions. If the account is open at the different place, you would be shown the corresponding information. Simply click on, Sign out all other sessions, to remotely log out of all places you may be logged in at.
It is always better to remember and log out of your account when you use it on a different computer. But if you forget, Gmail has this solution.
