Is there any way to delete or reset the "Your recent activity" on my Google website.  I want to remove the iPhone addresses listed.

The help pages say this:

Can I turn the Last Account Activity Alert off?

You can turn off Last Account Activity Alerts by changing your alert preferences underneath the recent activity table. Click change, next to Show an alert for unusual activity and you'll have the option to never show an alert for unusual activity. Keep in mind that we need about a week to disable this feature, to make sure the bad guys aren't the ones who turned off your alerts.

So, yes you can turn it off, but as this is on for security reasons, I wouldn't recommend it.

Open your gmail account, totally at the bottom look for:

Last account activity: 50 minutes ago (Details)

Click on Details. A seperate window will open.

Look for:
Alert preference: Show an alert for unusual activity. (change)

Click on Change.
Change the radio button from: Show an alert to Never show, click Apply.

Wait for one week and the list should be empty from now on.

Does this also clear out the iPhone address history of my website. As in the attachment  I placed earlier?

Ai, I got it wrong then. I was focusing on Gmail, not Google in general. As there are no options here to choose and nothing on this subject in the help files, I think you're out of luck.

The system is working as designed. I don't think support is going to add a special function just for you.
