Google has rolled out a new feature for Android users to keep its users account more secure:Native Android Push Notification when a new device accesses your Google account. 

Google has already been offering email notification for newly added devices, but since people usually ignore emails, the tech giant will now send a push notification to your device screen, giving you a chance to change your password immediately before an intruder gets in. 

Although it’s a little change, the company believes people pay four times more attention on push notifications on their devices compared to email notification. 

The new feature “ increases transparency to the user of what actions they’ve performed and allows them to flag any suspicious activity they may be seeing on the device,” the company says in its official blog post.

So, from now on, when a new device is added to your Google account, or, in other words, when a new device accesses your account, you will receive a push notification on your current Android device, asking: 

“ Did you just sign in?“ 

If yes, you can just ignore the notification. But if the activity appears suspicious, you just have to tap the “Review account activity” button to know about the details of the new device. 

You can immediately change your password and add two-factor authorization (2FA) if you are worried someone else has accessed your account. 

The new feature is rolling out to users gradually, and it may take over two weeks to reach all the users across the world. 

Recently, Google is taking several measures to secure its users’ account privacy. Google also introduced “ Google Prompt” that makes 2-Step Verification (2FV) process much easier for you, allowing you to log in with just a single tap instead of typing codes.

Huawei Phones Not Allowed To Use Android Officially Anymore 11

This is coming at a time where Huawei is making changes to the Android market as we know it and Google revoked their licence based on mere accusations,

Accusations that haven’t been even proved to be true. This decision would probably worsen the trade war between China and the United States.

The consequences of this may end up affecting all technological markets and the world economy in general. Don’t forget that Huawei is the world’s second-largest seller of smartphones

Newer devices from Huawei will not be able to install Android updates, or any Google apps, including Google Play Store and Gmail. However, you can simply access those Android updates through AOSP and GAPPs but without any support from Google.

Donald Trump had accused Huawei of working for the Chinese government, installing back doors in their networks and devices to facilitate surveillance, without any evidence at all.

This made the senior manager of Huawei get arrested a few months ago. Since then, both China and the United States have imposed tariffs on their respective products. Recently, the Trump Administration added the Chinese brand Huawei to the blacklist of the Department of Commerce, hence, forcing American companies to stop having commercial relations with Huawei.

However, according to Reuters, Google is the first to comply with the recently approved law, but other US companies that have commercial relations with Huawei, like Qualcomm, Intel, NVIDIA, will have to make a similar decision.
