Google Offers Better Privacy And Security Controls With Its ‘My Account’ Dashboard

Google has launched a new dashboard called My Account that will allow users to better control their privacy and security settings from a single place across their Google accounts.


The company isn’t exactly handing over new controls to users with respect to what information it mines but is simply making it easier for users to now decide what info Google services have access to.

Google announced My Accounts at its I/O conference last week, and detailed two of its main features – Privacy Checkup and Security Checkup – which essentially hold a user’s hand through the process of checking their privacy and security settings.


There’s also an Ads Setting tool which helps refine the ads users see based on their interests and search history. Finally, Google has also created a companion site ( that will answer user queries about where and what does the company do with your data.
