Security: Recent Activity Log coming to Microsoft Account

Microsoft's commitment to ensuring secured online experience for users continue to get attention as the company announced "Recent activity notification" feature for Microsoft Accounts. The recent activity log serves to notify users of various point and means through which access has been gained into accounts, so as to be able to ascertain when an unauthorized access is gained.

The “Recent activity” page shows info about the activity in your Microsoft account, within the last 30 days, including any time that you signed in to your account, whether on a web browser, your phone, an email app, or a third-party app.

Microsoft is equally adding more control over security notifications for certain activities, such as resetting your password or logging in from a new device.

The company had recently pushed out Two-Factor Authentication to all users, ensuring maximum security through a second authentication method outside the common password. And with the new feature, promises to provide a fallback for users who have enabled two-step authentication on their accounts.
