Google Introduces Account Activity As An Analytics Tool For Your Google Account

If you have been wanting to check out how many emails you have been receiving on your Google account of late, or that what are the busiest days for your account, Google has just solved your problem. The company has rolled out a beta version of an analytics tool called Account Activity. With the help of this tool, you can get a very quick overview of what has been happening on your Google account.

Account Activity is not limited to users who have a @gmail Google account. Rather, users of Google Apps who tool a custom domain name can also make use of it. And the breadth of this tool is not limited specifically to your mails. It also lets you get a quick review of your searches which you can parse by volume, by search type and by top queries.

The best aspect of this tool is that it can be very helpful when it comes to account security. For instance, if in your Account Activity, you see an account login that you remember you didn’t do or which was done using a device you haven’t used, it probably means that your account’s security is at risk and that you should immediately do something about it.

According to the official page, the reports can take up to few days to process and reach back to you. However, if you have one or so accounts, it will probably just a few minutes. On the other hand, if you have a whole lot of Google accounts, that can, of course, take much longer.
