    • Lets you review recent sign-in activity
      Reviewing this lets you validate the sign-ins are coming from you and not someone who shouldn’t be using your credentials.
    • Confirms the apps and devices that access some account information
      This step lets you monitor this list and remove apps and devices that don’t need access to your account any more.
