Today, Google announced some new security features for its subscribers that should make it easier to manage the equipment linked to your account. While some people may have already had access to these options, Mountain View has now made them available to its entire user base. The gist of the search company’s new dashboard is a quick way to review  and control the gear tied to your profile. This will let you quickly revoke a device’s access if you happen to lose your phone, laptop or tablet.

This feature will also help you keep tabs on suspicious activity if your Google account ever becomes compromised. In addition to a new dashboard to monitor your hardware being used, the tech giant has introduced a security wizard for Google for Work accounts that can be used to establish features like contact info for account recovery, activity history and permissions. To visit the wizard, there’s no need to walk down a yellow brick road, just visit this link to get started.
