Hello friends! Google is constantly updating its systems, interface, and especially privacy settings to improve your experience when using its products. Most of these improvements are usually not well known. Google offers you a wide variety of updates that contribute to improving the security of the browser. In addition to the link, it has your Google account. So, in this post, I bring you 4 Google privacy settings that you should have on your Android. So you can get the most out of your device.
Enable enhanced protection in Google Chrome
With this option, you can make your browser experience more secure. You will receive notifications of malicious software that wants to get into your device, risky extensions, and phishing.
Open the Chrome app on your Android device
Then tap the menu button (the button with the three dots located in the upper right corner). Then click on “Settings”.
After that, select the “Privacy and Security” tab.
Next, click on “Safe Browsing”.
Finally, select the “Enhanced Protection” and you’re done.
Protect your Google activities with passwords
This browser runs a complete tracking of each of the activities you perform when you use some of its products. You can check all this information from my Google activity. However, there are certain security measures so that not just anyone can access this type of information.
Open the Google Chrome app and sign in to Google, if you are not already signed in.
Then open the “My Activity” page, you can search for it in the browser or you can also click on the following link:
After that, tap on “Manage My Activity verification”.
Next, select the option to require additional verification. Finally, choose the method to confirm your identity.
Remove data from Google services
This information is essential when running apps on your devices, as they facilitate processes and improve their functionality. However, it is not necessary to keep Google services data forever, because, over time, you stop using many apps that were once important.
Sign in to Google from your Android device.
Then select the “Data and Privacy” tab.
After that, tap on “Delete a Google service”.
Then select the service in which you want to delete the data. Click on Delete and you’re done.
Manage the apps connected to your account
Many apps enhance the user experience when you sign in with Google. The downside of this is that apps accumulate over time and some of them you stop using them. Therefore, I recommend that you disable access to apps that you no longer use.
Throughout this post, we showed you some of the settings that you can modify on your Android device. To improve privacy specifically in the section of your Google account and its link with the Google Chrome browser. One of these settings is the enhanced protection that is not normally enabled but instead comes with the standard settings. Another interesting option is to password-protect the Google activity log, which is important to maintain your privacy. Also, deleting data from apps that are linked to Google that are no longer in use is a smart move that you may be overlooking. Finally, reviewing the apps to which you grant access to your account is a good way to maintain your security and privacy. Thanks for reading. Goodbye!
