Location history on OK contains information on the users' visits of the site. It is required for security purposes. By tracking this information regularly, you will be able to remove external access points and learn about the page being hacked on time.

Location history has data on latest connections from common web browsers, mobile devices, third-party apps etc. to your profile. Location and time are listed in the history for each access point.

  1. How to see the location history on OK: Click the profile picture thumbnail and select "Change settings" from the menu.
  2. The location history will be situated on the left; click it and view all latest access points.

If you received a notification about suspicious activity in your profile, check your location history: unusual access points will have special marks. If any of your profile access points look strange (for example, you spent all week in Ryazan, but you see New York on the list), change your profile password immediately, as it may have been compromised.

Now you know how to check the location history on OK. Now, imagine that you viewed the access points and noticed another city in there. Should you be concerned about the safety of your account?

Another city may be displayed in case your IP address is dynamic and changes with each connection. If you are not certain what IP type you have, check it in online services (the address is listed in the Pv4 string). Remember or write down these numbers, restart the router and refresh the page. If the numbers have changed, your IP is dynamic. If they haven't, then it's static.

If the IP is static, but there are other cities in the list of access points, this may mean that your page has been hacked. If this happens, click the "Log out on all devices" button and change the password.
