Google Unveils a New Feature

In a recent report, it has been claimed that users of Google services would be able to offer a comprehensive analysis of their activity. This service would allow users transparency and control, thereby enhancing its efficiency.

The new ‘Account Activity’ feature would show the users how many emails they have sent, received, and many other Google services they availed during the month. This service would surely allow users to track down their activities in a particular month. The report would also report potentially sensitive details, including top search terms and geographical data, from where users have accessed the service. Nonetheless, the company has made it sire that there would not be any threat to the users’ sensitive information.

“Knowing more about your own account activity also can help you take steps to protect your Google Account”, said the Google Product Manager, Andreas Tuerk, in a blog post. All one would have to do is to opt-in to the feature, which would further make the giant advertising company to send them a monthly password-protected report.

As of now, the new feature reports on Gmail, search and a few other Google services, but Google+ - the company's social network, is aloof from it.
