View access logs for your account

Whether you're worried that someone may have accessed your account, or you forgot to sign out of Slack on a shared device, access logs make it easy 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 log in.
  • 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 on your profile picture in the top right.
  2. Select View profile to open it.
  3. Below your profile picture, click  More, then Account settings.
  4. Click Access logs in the top right to view your logs. If you like, click Download access logs to save a copy to your computer.

If you notice any unusual or suspicious activity, return to your Account settings page and select Sign out all other sessions.
