How to Check Devices Connected to Google Account

If you’ve ever sold a used Android phone, you may have forgotten to unlink the Gmail account from that device. While this might not pose a problem if you used a dummy account, it can become a significant issue if it’s your personal account. The new owner of the phone could access your emails, linked phone numbers, applications, and a lot of valuable and private information. However, Google has made it easy to check what phones or laptops your email has been linked to and sign out of them remotely.

Firstly, you need to go to this website. If you are signed in, this will work instantly; however, if you are not, you will have to sign in to your email using Gmail or another service. Once you’re signed in, you can see all of the devices linked to your account. If you see anything suspicious, you can click on it to see more information about the device model, the browser used, and the last time and place it was linked to your account.

If you wish to remove access, you can click on the small red button labeled “REMOVE.” Google will then inquire if you wish to remove access. If you confirm by clicking “remove,” the access will be revoked. Additionally, if you wish to delete all information from this phone, you may click on the Android Device Manager. If there’s a chance someone has control of your account, you can change your password using the “Secure Your Account” option.
