Disconnect a Gmail account remotely

When you use a new device or browser to sign in to your Gmail account, Google sends an email notification to notify you of the action and make sure you did it. If you are not the author of the connection, Google offers you the possibility to take security measures.

Notification of Google Account activity

Once the device / browser is recognized, Google saves it in the list of your devices. This is to no longer send you notifications when connecting through this device. But having your Gmail account opened in a device you don't own is extremely dangerous, whether it belongs to a close person (friend) or not.

Gmail or other service (Google or not), be sure to log out each time you log in from a device that does not belong to you. Another thing, avoid registering your mot de passe in the browser of a device that you don't own.
