See What Going On In Your Google Account With 'Account Activity' [googleblog.blogspot.co.uk]
Today we're introducing Account Activity, a new feature in your Google Account. If you sign up, each month we'll send you a link to a password-protected report with insights into your signed-in use of Google services.
Knowing more about your own account activity also can help you take steps to protect your Google Account. For example, if you notice sign-ins from countries where you haven't been or devices you've never owned, you can change your password immediately and sign up for the extra level of security provided by 2-step verification.


This appears to be a security feature, rather than anything else.

I would have liked it to have been an option to remove data. When I say remove, I mean to remove it entirely from Google's servers.

Seems useful, but as you say, not really providing any control over data.

I received the first report from it just now, and it's fairly shallow data. I don't want to know that MSIE accessed my account, I want a log with IP addresses!
