Google Turns On Native Security Alerts for Android Log-Ins

Google today said it is taking a more proactive step to notify users when there is new account activity. Specifically, Google will send push notifications to Android devices associated with an account every time a new device is added to the account. Users can review the activity to see what device was added and at what location. People can dismiss expected activity, such as when adding a new Android tablet, or immediately secure their account if the activity appears to be suspicious. Google says the native Android notifications are more visible than email notifications, and are reviewed by users four times more often. Google is rolling the feature out to all users slowly over the next two weeks.
