How to find out if someone's snooping your Gmail account

Washington, Jan. 29 : Those concerned about their Gmail account being hacked or snooped on can find out if it is so by using a simple tool provided by Google.

Since the NSA revelations, privacy has become a priority for even those who bothered less about revealing a personal detail like birth date here and there on a social network.

According to TechHive, to find if the Gmail account has been hacked, a user can log in the account from a desktop browser and locate the link labeled 'Details' at the bottom of the inbox screen.

Clicking on the link would lead to a pop-up window that shows the last 10 times someone accessed the Gmail account, along with how they accessed it (through a browser, an email app, and so on), their IP address, and when they accessed it.

To beef up the security, a user can turn on two-factor authentication for the Google account and store the IP addresses of the various systems one uses (work, home, mobile) in order to crosscheck if anything is found fishy.
