Google simplifies privacy settings with new online hub

Google has been making some major changes over the last couple of months since Sundar Pichai took over of the company’s units last fall. Most of these changes have been focused in unification and simplification, given the vast amount of services that Google offers. Privacy has definitely become a concern for many lately, and given how convoluted this was in Google before, the company has just provided a solution.

As of today you’ll notice that Google has just launched a new account security hub for all users. In a nutshell this service consolidates all your privacy and security settings in one page. This hub is segregated in three sections: Sign-in and security, personal info & privacy, and it ends with account preferences. From these three sections you’ll be able to control the devices that have access to your account, and your overall security settings across all of Google’s services. Google has also updated its privacy policy, since hey, changes need to be communicated and accepted.

These are definitely great news for many, as the service does bring some much-needed order to one of the most sensitive departments in the industry. We’ll keep you posted if we learn more as we continue testing it.
