Millions of people around the world log into their Google account daily and check their account dashboard in the process. With privacy becoming a common concern among American consumers following the Facebook scandal, tech giants like Google are making it easier for their users to make adjustments to what can and cannot be seen by others or used for advertising purposes.
Google knows a lot about its customers; we all know that. But to cooperate with federal privacy laws, the company must allow its customers to manage what can and cannot be seen. That’s mainly what the Google Account Dashboard is for, however it also serves other account management functions. Think of it as one giant settings menu for your Google account.
Changes being made to the Google Account Dashboard layout on Android (today), iOS and web (later this year) make the page easier to read. While the changes will go unnoticed by many, others will appreciate them because it’s not every day Google re-organizes this menu. There are newly added summaries and visual cues to help users find the setting they’re looking for and make a change shall they need to. There’s also a new support section should you run into problems, and a search feature makes it easier to locate certain information.
If you ever need or want to make an adjustment to a security, privacy or other setting of that nature, the new Google Account Dashboard is the proper destination to get things solved in no time. The update for Android is rolling out now, but is staged like usual with Google services. Some users already see the updated menu, but most Android device owners should by next week.
