View access logs for your account

Worried someone else might have accessed your account? Or forgotten 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
