Now You Can Google Yourself Into Better Privacy and Data Protection (Naked Security)


Want to find out everything Google knows about you? Well, you can just Google yourself!

Seriously. Googling your own name is the best way to find how deeply Google’s been digging into your digital life, as the company itself says.

And coming soon, you’ll have the ability to do a vanity search on your own name and, if you’re signed in, you’ll see a shortcut that leads to “My Account” – a hub Google set up last year that lets users find and control settings to protect privacy and safeguard their data.

On Wednesday, the 1-year anniversary of My Account’s rollout, Google announced multiple new features, including this easier way for users to get at their Google privacy and security settings.
