Microsoft , Google , Facebook , Apple all can show you where and what devices you are signed into.
Why is this a great thing ?
Well if you are having issues with your account and wonder if someone else has access to your account ( they may know your password).
Do you have a Microsoft account , Hotmail account or Outlook.com ( the online email account service from Microsoft) and wonder if someone else has access to your account ( they may know your password).
First log onto your Microsoft account at Microsoft Account
Then look for your Recent Activity Page
If you notice that you are logged on somewhere where you are not , then it is time to examine your security settings.
- Change passwords
- Turn on 2 factor authentication – you should do this anyway – give Microsoft your mobile phone number it will keep you secure.
If you have a Gmail account , look for the Device Activity & Security Events section in your Google Account
I am constantly seeing people on Facebook claiming that their account has been ”hacked”.
So how do you know if someone else is accessing your Facebook account , as well as you?
- Go to your Facebook page
- Open Settings
- Go to Security
- Then have a look at ” Where You Are Logged In “
If you see one that is not you , use – End Activity
If someone else has been using your account it might not be a bad idea to change your password and turn on 2 factor authentication by giving Facebook your mobile phone number.
Apple have some great instructions on how to do this at
