I have stumbled upon this (see pic below - not my computer) for sometimes now during my time as a Gmail user. "Sign out all other sessions" is what concerns me because I havent logged in on any other place and I always log out my sessions. I have reinstalled my computer but from time to time I see it.

Anyone else seeing this on their account activity on Gmail?

Have you changed your password and see if that still happened?

Sign out all other sessions is always there. It's nothing to worry about. However, you should keep an eye on the Recent activity just in case your account is compromised (now or in the future).

No its not a standard message/always there.

Yes I have, no change.

Can you provide a reason for this statement?

Here is my Details windows:

Note: I have reset my password after having the "Unknown" activity, and have had no problems. The activity was legitimate (an IM client I tried out), just not reported to Google properly.

Concurrent sessions

If your mail is currently being accessed from another location, we'll list the other session(s) in a 'Concurrent session information' table. If there are other sessions displayed, this could mean that you simply have another browser window open with Gmail loaded, or that you're sign in on another computer (for example, if your home computer is signed in to Gmail while you're accessing your mail from work.) If you're concerned about any concurrent access, you can sign out all sessions other than your current session by clicking Sign out all other sessions.

This should be the standard (not my computer):
