Google has announced the update of the Control Panel, the site that users visit to learn about Google products and the data associated with them.
From the beginning of next week it will be available and updated to all users worldwide. There will also be some changes that are based on the trends that are emerging from the use of your existing tools and privacy controls.
Making it easier to use Google’s Control Panel
The Google Control Panel was introduced in 2009 to provide a comprehensive overview of Google’s products: all in one place. So one could look at last month’s activities, see how many emails, documents and photos he has and get answers to questions about Gmail settings. The Control Panel also provided quick access to the settings of different products and related articles in the Help Center.
But as Google created new tools such as “My Account” and “My Activity”, it became clear that it needed better integration of the Control Panel into the other privacy controls. It should always be easy for you to make important decisions about your data, and Google can help.
Google will present a new version of the Control Panel
The Control Panel was redesigned from scratch. The most important change was to improve usability on touch screens to make sure that the Control Panel works as efficiently on all devices. In addition, the company has worked to make it easier for you to see all Google products you use and your data in each one of them. Google has also made the data capture process much easier.
Privacy Control that works for you
You may not use it daily, however, privacy control is there whenever you need it. Google is pleased with the fact that privacy controls have proven to be useful to many users, and everyone’s needs.
Last year, Google introduced “My Activity” to provide one-point personalized information where you can see how you’ve used its services. More than 150 million people have used this service to track down a funny video they watched, remember how they got to an exciting article and more. Of course, if you want to delete any of the items that appear in your Activity, you can do that too. You – and only you – can view and review the information in the “My Activity” section.
The “My Account” service started in 2015 and contained confidentiality settings. It was a simple to use tool to check your data and to update personal information that you share publicly. Tens of millions of Google users around the world have used it to implement their privacy options.
In 2011, Google created Takeout, now known as “Getting Your Data”, which enables anyone to save a copy of their data and export their information from Google. Since then, users have downloaded more than one exabyte of data, and today there are over 1 million exports each month. You can move your data straight to OneDrive and Dropbox, and soon Box and other options will be added.
In 2009, Google introduced the ad management service, now called “Ad Settings”. This is a powerful control panel, where you can control Google’s ads on the Internet and YouTube. The tool also has more detailed controls. For example, if you only want to see ads related to specific categories of products and services, such as sports or entertainment, you can add these categories and remove others.
Creating tools that help users understand the data stored in their Account and privacy control is subject to a continuous and continuous improvement effort. For more information about Google’s commitment to protecting your privacy, visit: privacy.google.com.
