Step 3.
Now you can see the recent activity and other activities in the past.There also you can see the "Login Notification" option,I would recommend to set it "On" to add an extra level of security.In the next login attempt you will be asked your computer name so,provide the desirable name and click on continue.
Step 4.
If you suspect any unfamiliar device or location based on your activity history then you can click on the "End activity" option to end that activity.
