This additional security level will make it very difficult for unknown users to access your account.

As we discussed before, you can observe how many devices has been or are logged into your account. For example, you may have the app both on your phone and your computer and you can use the app on these two devices. Here, you are able to see the information of devices that have access to your account. Therefore, you can see if someone is using or has been used your account and remove those unknown devices. 

To restrict the access to your account by this option follow these steps.
