Revamped Google Account Brings Improved Privacy and Security Options
A revamped Google Account being rolled out today has introduced tons of new features that make it easy for users to navigate their account, while highlighting security and privacy options for better transparency and control.
The new Google Account provides detailed summaries of relevant information associated with it, such as your personal info, your devices, payment methods, purchases, subscriptions, reservations, and contacts. A new search functionality enables you to find settings and other info you might be looking for in your account, like how to change your password.
Users can now more easily find their Activity controls in the Data & Personalization tab and choose what types of activity data are saved in their account. The updated Privacy Checkup feature also helps users review their privacy settings and explains how they shape their experience across Google services.
“When you have a problem but don’t quite know what to look for, you can access a new dedicated support section as well. There, you’ll find help with common tasks, like upgrading your account storage, and get answers from community experts.
We know that when it comes to data and privacy, one size does not fit all. To help you better understand and take control of your Google Account, we’ve made all your privacy options easy to review with our new intuitive, user-tested design.”
The new experience is available now for Android users and will launch on iOS and web soon as well.
