Google Releases A New Feature For Android To Strengthen Security

New Android Security Feature

Google has released a new feature for Android users that notifies them of the security events on their account. The company’s newly rolled out native notifications notify the users about the newly added devices to their Google account to keep them more secure. It enables users to have the know-how of who or what has access to their information.

“We’ve … found that with Android notifications, users are up to four times as likely to review the information as compared to email notifications,” Google wrote in a blog post.

With this notification feature, you can see a notification appear right on your Android device when you add a new device to your account. Thereafter, tap to review the activity. Google will show the location, device from where the new device was added, the IP address, and other relevant information. In case you find the device suspicious, you can quickly secure your account with just one tap.
