Google is about to make it a whole lot easier for you to control what information you share with the internet giant. The company recently announced a refreshed version of Google Dashboard that comes with a brand new design, making it much easier for users to see the Google products they use and the data associated with them.
The new Google Dashboard is built from the ground up, improving usability on touchscreens. Say goodbye to tiny texts that require you to constantly zoom in and out to see a clearer picture. Everything looks more in-line with typical smartphone interface, with bigger text, and more graphical representations. Data are neatly stored based on various Google products you use, and if you need a copy, you can easily download your data from the dashboard itself.

So, what can you do on Google Dashboard? With My Activity, you can see all your activities on Google including the videos you’ve watched, your search queries, and such. All My Activity information is private to you, but should you wish to, you may delete them from your dashboard.
Privacy Checkup on My Account is also a very useful tool for you to control your privacy on Google. The tool lets you see your data across Google, and let you control the information you share and make public. Google says that tens of millions Google users around the world are using Privacy Checkup.
The new design will be rolled out “in the coming days”.
