Google makes it easy to view all devices logged into your Google account, such as laptops, phones, tables, and other gadgets, even if you forget to log out of Gmail.
You can also see the IP addresses that have accessed your account and the devices that have used your account actively in the past 28 days.
These aren’t necessarily complete. Google shows only devices that have accessed your account in the last 24 hours. Not all devices may be visible. Google does not display devices that have accessed your account via connected apps.

Google’s Gmail offers a new account activity feature. It displays the IP addresses that have accessed your Gmail account recently, according to PocketLint.
To access this feature, go to Gmail.com and click the “Details” link in the bottom right corner.
This page will show you whether you have multiple accounts. It will show you which device the account was accessed on, what IP address it was accessed from and when it occurred.
Click the “Show Details” link to view more information about the device or application that accessed your account.
You should investigate suspicious looking IP addresses, such as one from another country or state. You may have just given Gmail access to the app, or it could be someone else having access to your account.
Google will alert you about suspicious-looking access made to your account. If you see unusual activity, Google will show you an alert.
You can change your password to ensure that your account is secure. This will close all open sessions and stop anyone who may have your password from signing in again.
