…Google’s security heightens more on My Activity.
Google has reportedly activated its privacy-first policy on “My Activity” — a Google service that stores users’ activities as historical data. While this My Activity can only read any Google’s products or services including, Assistant, Chrome even the Android device as a whole.
Google’s My Activity page is now password enabled, and with this verification, Android users cannot be stalked by noisy friends, neighbours, or other third parties.
Remember, a Google account serves as a key to unlock other Google services or products — Google also has a simplified UI. While logged on your Google Activity page, click the “Manage My Activity” — this verification link directs you to an optional page where you will select “Require Extra Verification,” then click save.
To confirm you assigned the request, Google asks for your password to enable the new changes. Meanwhile, some Google account have their verification disabled — if you are in this category, follow activity.google.com without a password to access your history and extra security — this link displays streamlined information about your history activities.
Google’s My Activity serves as a product that preserves the history of users’ activities while using Google products. For contrast, this tool protects user information especially when the device is publicly used — other scenarios might include office or family computers.
Remember, after clicking enter or the Verify button, a valid Google account is required to confirm these changes.
The simplicity of this tool also gives you the access to observe the exact Google product the tech company is storing. You can also enable auto-delete — stored information becomes old then wipes off by default.
While logged on either the activity web page or its app, Google suggests user feedback to improve their development — you can either choose to be happy with the online security or Google suggests you deactivate its verification service.
During the previous global I/O event Google hosted, its chief executive Sundar Pichai emphasized more about privacy, which featured on Photo folders, Chrome browser, and its flagship Android latest Private Computer Core.
