How to Log in to Another Computer on Your Local Wireless Network

Log in to another computer

Computer / December 11, 2014

I check my personal Gmail on the Web at work and sometimes forget to sign out of my account before I leave for the day. Is there a way to see if I left it on back at the office?

A.

Gmail includes a feature that shows all your account activity on different computers and devices. Better yet, you can also use this tool to remotely sign out of any Gmail sessions on other computers and keep your account more secure.

To see your account activity, sign into Gmail on the Web from your home computer and scroll down to the bottom of the page. On the right side, you should see a line that says “Last account activity” and lists the most recent time mail was checked on your account, along with a Details link.

Click the Details link to open a page listing all your account activity on different computers and mobile devices, including the Internet addresses used and the times the account activity occurred. If you see other locations where your Gmail account is active, click the “Sign out of all other sessions” button to log out everywhere else.
