An important aspect of maintaining account security is knowing what devices are signed into your account. Google makes this information available when you view your Google Account. But, this information is only useful if you can distinguish your devices from other devices that should not have access.
I find it easy to distinguish my Android phones, as the device name is displayed in the ‘Your devices’ information. But recognizing my Windows' computers is a different story. The information provided for Windows devices does not allow me to definitively identify my devices.
Figure 1 shows a screen shot of the Google Account device information for a Windows device that was signed into my account. It appears that only two distinguishing factors are presented: time and location. Neither are helpful. The location provided is ‘United States’, which is a very large geographical area. The time is not very useful either. I do not log the time when I sign into and out of my Google Account.
Is there something I can configure that will allow me to definitively recognize my Windows devices? For example, can Google display the device name of my Windows’ device? Or, is there a setting in my browser app that I could configure that would be displayed? Without some more definitive information, I feel like I’m just guessing. I would rather not guess when it involves my security.
