Google working on its privacy and security user dashboard

In an endeavor to make Google’s privacy and security user
dashboard more touchscreen-friendly, the business will soon be pushing out
design changes on the dashboard. This will also make users be more alert of which
Google products are storing their data. In other words, there’s a new way to
get more data from Google.

In a blog post published recently, Google stated that its
main user dashboard has been redesigned from the ground up. This dashboard
includes tools like MyAccount and MyActivity, which are portals through which
you can see all your Google activity, delete search activity and manage your
activity across various Google products. This user dashboard has been in
existence since 2009.Google user dashboard
Now, Google appears to have made the new user dashboard more
graphical. The first option you would see is the “See and manage the data in
your Google account” option, followed by the “Popular Google services” option.

This current version of the dashboard is mainly text-driven, with lots of
sub-menus, and it requires navigating first from My Account to Personal Info
& Privacy, or to My Activity in order to run a data check.  Google says that the changes will take effect
in the coming days.
Also, the company has also shared some information on how
many people make use of the specific tools available in the user dashboard.
According to Google, hundreds of millions of people visit the My Account
dashboard each year. Tens of millions of people have used Google’s Privacy
Checkup, which was launched in 2015.

Furthermore, as a way to remind people that they can take
their data off the site whenever they want, Google says that more than a
million people use the Takeout feature every month. This feature lets you take
all of your personal data stored in Google services and store it elsewhere.
According to the company, since Takeout launched in 2011, users have downloaded
more than one billion gigabytes of data.
