View Access Logs for your account

Worried someone else may have accessed your account? Or maybe you forgot to sign out of Slack while on a shared device. Access Logs are an easy way to check for any unusual or suspicious activity on your Slack account.

What can you see using Access Logs? 

  • The time and date of each new login
  • The IP address of each device that has accessed your account
  • A list of devices that have accessed your account

View your Access Logs

  1. From your desktop, click your workspace name in the top left.
  2. Select View profile to open it on the right.
  3. Below your profile image, click the  three dots icon, then click Account settings.
  4. From your Account Settings page, click Access Logs in the top right to view your logs. To download your logs, click Download Access Logs.
