Monitoring Your Account

Quick Intro 

At Adafruit, we have an option to help you keep logs of who is logging into your account.  If you choose to opt-in to the notification service, you will receive an email every time your account is logged into. 

The email will contain:

  1. Public IP of the device used to log into your account
  2. Username/email of the account being accessed on Adafruit
  3. The data and time your account was accessed

An email example is shown in the screenshot below:

Impact

Monitoring on your account is important. If there is a suspicious login you do not recognize, you can take immediate measures. 

Some measures include changing your password and revoking access to the device with the suspicious IP (Internet) address.
