When you sign in to your Google Account from a new device, Google automatically adds that device to your account. It’s normal for users to have at least 3 to 4 devices linked to their Google accounts. However, these sign-in devices don’t need to be connected to your account, and if they are not in use, you can easily remove them.
Your Google Account settings page will show all devices you have used to sign in to Google, including the active ones and those you sold or lost.
Also, don’t forget, sometimes we log in to our Google account from our friend’s computer/phone, and we forget to sign out. What’s more important is that Google Provides you an option to remove devices that you don’t own or trust. Google’s Account settings page will also list such devices.
