Have you ever received those emails from friends requesting money sent to them in a foreign bank account because they had a quick travel and accidentally got robbed or kidnapped and the only way they can be released is if somebody sent them money and all that yada yada yada stuff?
You are lucky if you haven't but most of us have, in fact, I just received one two days ago.
Well, there is a reason to rejoice, for one of the Gmail Engineers, Pavni Diwanji, has just posted an update on the gmail blog saying that, as of today, Gmail is introducing a new feature to notify their users when they detect suspicious login activity on user accounts. This is in addition to the already aexisting remote sign out and information about recent account activity where one could see this information displayed at the bottom of inbox notifying them of the last login activity prior to the current one.
This new warning notice will display the following message, "Warning: We believe your account was last accessed from…" along with the geographic region that they can best associate with the access.
