Google Updates and Unifies Privacy Policy Across All Services (Android Included)


Google announced today that — starting March 1st — they will be streamlining their privacy policy across all of their services, Android included. This means no matter which Google service or product you’re using, you can expect the same exact Google sanctioned privacy policy across the board.

Google has also taken a note from companies like Dropbox, who are now using “plain language” and less “lawyer talk” when drafting out their policies, which I’m sure will come as an added peace of mind (and clarification) for those concerned with how Google is using their information. Privacy in the online world has been a growing concern as of late, with Google’s name popping up in more than a few investigations over privacy concerns.

A handy, easy-to-follow-along video was also provided by Google that you can share with friends and family explaining how, when Google shares information across their products and services, it can enrich and create a better experience for the end user. Nothing to be afraid of.

Of course, when you want out, Google also makes it easy to completely take your entire online identity and data with you. Can’t beat that with a stick.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. Only part that bothers me:

    telephony log information like your phone number, calling-party number, forwarding numbers, time and date of calls, duration of calls, SMS routing information and types of calls. 

    All the rest is expected.

  2. Agreewith Firewalker….. and I use DuckDuckGo for my search because no one has the right to peer over my shoulder to spy on what I am reading, much less catalogue it. The rest of it I can deal with…. I think.

  3. What makes you think your favorite search engine isn’t catalogueing everything you’re doing?
