Google added a new feature in Gmail that ‘notify when detected suspicious login activity’ on your account “if it looks like something unusual is going on with your account, we’ll also alert you by posting a warning message saying, ‘Warning: We believe your account was last accessed from…’ along with geographic region that we can best associate with the access,” says Google. “To determine when to display this message, our automated system matches relevant IP address, logged per Gmail privacy policy, to a broad geographical location. While we don't have capability to determine specific location from which an account is accessed, a login appearing to come from one country and occurring a few hours after a login from another country may trigger an alert,” explain Google. By clicking on "Details" link next to the message, you'll see last account activity window that you're used to, along with most recent access points.
