This is contained in a statement from the organisation which was obtained by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos.
The statement said that henceforth, Android users should expect a notification on their Smartphones while receiving an email alert when a new device has been used to log into Google’s account.
It said that the native notification would ask whether the users have just tried to sign in.
The statement added that from there, the users could tap the notification to review account activity and take action to secure their accounts, if necessary.
“The purpose of login email alerts were to offer accounts owners a real-time view of access to an account, allowing for a faster reaction in the event of a hijacking attempt.
“People are four times more likely to review alerts in mobile notifications than in email,’’ it said.
“To receive the prompts on iOS, the Google Search app must be installed, while the prompts are delivered on Android through Google Play Services,’’ the statement added. (NAN)
