While some issues like being logged out of your Google account from a particular app due to long periods of inactivity might addressed at a later date if you are currently not interacting with that app, however, there are other activities that requires immediate attention.

For instance, if your account’s password or any other related information has been compromised, then those details will be out there on the web for everyone to access. And things could take a turn for the worse if you had used those details across any other app as well. So to make the user aware of these issues and warnings at the earliest, Google sends these Account Action Required notifications.
