When You Log Into AOL, Does It Tell You the Last Time You Logged In?

Print this articleAOL used to be available exclusively by disc or CD software installation, but the service is now available to anyone with a Web browser through the AOL website. While AOL does not explicitly give you the date of your last login, there are ways to ascertain an approximate date for the last time your account was used.

AOL mail can be accessed from any Web browser. The site works best with Internet connections that are not dial-up, such as broadband or DSL. You can also log into your account from any computer, as long as it has an Internet connection. There is no "Last Login Date" line anywhere on the AOL home page or the Mail screen that lets you know when you last logged in and checked your account.

Read Mail

If you read all new messages when you access your account, there is a way to determine the approximate date of your last login. Unread messages have bold subject lines and sender information in the inbox. The first email in your inbox that is not in bold indicates mail you read in your last session on AOL. Look at the date of that email; assuming you received it on or about the date of your last login, you will know how long it has been since you checked your mail.

Automatic Sign Off

Navigating away from your AOL page is not enough to log you out of your account. By default, the site will leave you logged in for 24 hours unless you manually log out. Go to the "Settings" link in the top right corner of the site and look in the "Automatically sign me off if I'm inactive for..." line to see how long you stay logged in. If, for instance, your settings keep you logged in for 48 hours, if you are still logged in, you will know that your account was accessed in the last two days.

Privacy

If you are concerned about the last login date because you think your account is being accessed by another person, change your password right away. A password can be changed by going to the "Settings" menu and choosing the "Account" link on the left side of the page. Click "Change your password" to begin the process.
