My Account: A new Google hub for privacy settings

News by Danielle Correa

Google has launched 'My Account', a new hub for privacy and security settings from which users can manage their information shared with different Google products, such as Maps and Search, as well as adjust the security settings for these services. 

My Account is divided into three sections:

  • Sign-in and security settings
  • Personal information and privacy settings
  • Account preferences

A link to the new privacy site is also included.  This link has a list of answers to FAQs such as, “What data does Google collect?” and “Does Google sell my personal information?”

With the new hub, Google account holders are able to do things such as change passwords, view devices accessed via their accounts, see what apps are connected to their Google profiles, update their personal info, browsing, and other activity history.
