    I am on my laptop checking my 12 year old son's activity because of his age. I found one I haven't seen before and it says used android settings. Because he is only 12 I did ask him but he says he doesn't know what is is. Is there a reason for concern or can someone explain what it means?

    Welcome to Android Central! It's normal for the Android system settings to periodically ping the user's Google account. Don't worry, it's normal.

    If you want to supervise his usage, consider Google Family Link: https://families.google.com/familylink/

    who knows what your son did. it could be anything from chainge wallpaper to chaniging notifications and many more innocent possibilities. IMO, nothing to worry about.
