Google analytics account, id and app added without me creating any of it

This was the first time i open analytics from this account. In the dashboard I find an account (under All Mobile App Data). The app name is gmail. I have users for an extended period of time, from all over the globe.

One option could be that someone used my account to register their app. Is there any other explanation?

Have you looked in the User Management Section for the GA Account and also Property to see if there are any other email addresses for other users also included.

 

Would someone have added you to their analytics account in order to give you access to the data?

 

I have seen instances where ppl have added someone accidently due to a typo in the email address and not realized
