The new dashboard gives you an overview of your account's activities and history.

In a move that garnered praise and admiration from numerous users around the world, Twitter is rolling out a data dashboard feature that will allow its users to manage and monitor their account activities in one page.

The data dashboard is accessible via the settings menu on your Twitter account. Just scroll down and find the “Your Twitter data” section. Basically, the dashboard will give you a glimpse of your account history, login history, and the devices currently accessing your account. You can also review apps that are connected to your account and download your Twitter archive.

So, why is this important? One word: security. Now, you can monitor the apps that are connected to your account. Maybe you’ve linked your account to a malicious app that you accidentally downloaded? Checking the recent logins will allow you monitor your activities. Who knows maybe someone is logging into your account from a different location?

Twitter has been tightening its security lately. Recently, it allowed users to use different names and even added a login verification feature. The company also added a “Do Not Track” option and extra security layers under the hood such as HTTPS, StartTLS and forward secrecy.

“Now, your Twitter data dashboard, which you can access from the settings menu, shows your account activation details, the devices that have accessed your account and your recent login history,” says Mollie Vandor, Product Manager for Safety and Security at Twitter. “With this information, you can quickly review your account activity and verify that everything looks the way it should.”
