If you happen to forget your password and after multiple trails to login will result in locking your account which can be accessed with the code sent to your recover email/phone (which ever you choose while revoking your account back). This happens in case of unauthorized access from someone other than you.
Step 2: The recent logins will be shown of all different devices your google account is signed into. This will contain the location of access ,the time and device name. If you notice any suspicious login or access from the list shown you can report that access to google and get your account secured.
