Google makes Gmail safer


by David Allen

For some time there have been some security issues with Google’s Gmail, but true to form they have not just sat back left it alone.

They have taken some positive action and appear to have moved in the right direction by offering some extra tools to monitor the account.

An email account can hold a lot of personal information, so it essential that this is keep private.

To help with this, Gmail will include information on the last log in, account activity and the IP address that the account was accessed from will also be displayed.

It’s a good idea to introduce these tools, as it will enable account holder to know if their account has been accessed by someone else.

This early warning will prompt users to change their password to something a little harder to crack.
