It seems that Google is continuing to push users to take control of their online privacy and security, today announcing a new site to control these things with ease.

Google isn’t just about their own users though, promising ‘We built My Account to be a resource for everyone, even if you don’t have a Google Account’. From the myaccount.google.com page you can access a range of checks and tools to help you maintain your privacy and security online, tools such as :

  • Take the Privacy Checkup and Security Checkup, our simple, step-by-step guides through your most important privacy and security settings.
  • Manage the information that can be used from Search, Maps, YouTube and other products to enhance your experience on Google. For example, you can turn on and off settings such as Web and App Activity, which gets you more relevant, faster search results, or Location History, which enables
  • Google Maps and Now to give you tips for a faster commute back home.
  • Use the Ads Settings tool to control ads based on your interests and the searches you’ve done.
  • Control which apps and sites are connected to your account.
  • The tool is now live, so it’s worth checking out over at myaccount.google.com.

    Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

    Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
