Sign-on notifications for end users
When enabled, this email notification notifies end users of any sign-in activity. The email contains user sign-on details such as the web browser, operating system used to sign in, and time and location of authentication.
New sign-on notification emails complement other security features such as multifactor authentication and shouldn't act as a replacement. In most scenarios, clients are easily and accurately identified but there are some limitations.
