Security is a crucial issue. As one of the biggest companies in the internet industry, Google knows it. Google will immediately let you know — via email — over suspicious activities on your account. If you get this email, you better change your password immediately to prevent something worse from happening to your account.
Regularly changing Google account password is also be a great step to take to keep your account safe. Google account itself is an account that you can use to access Google’s services. From Gmail, Google Drive, Google Docs, Android, and so on. Changing your password of a certain service, say Gmail, means that you also change your password of other Google’s services. If you want to change your Gmail password, you can do so via Google Account, which you can access via the Gmail dashboard as well.
To change your Google account via Gmail, click your profile icon on the top-right corner, followed by the Google Account button.
You will be directed to the Google Account page. On this page, click the Security menu on the left panel. You can change your password by clicking the Password option under the Signing in to Google section.
