    Google plans to redesign its privacy and security dashboard

    Google published a blog post today which states that its 2009 launched user dashboard will be redesigned entirely. This dashboard includes tools that allow users to edit details associated with their Google accounts and activities over various Google tools and products. For those of you have yet not discovered the activity tool, it allows you to see all the activities over Google tools and products in a diversified manner. It also allows you to delete search history and manage various activities depending upon the Google product you have used.

    The blog read, "As we built new tools like My Account and My Activity, it became clear that we needed to better integrate Dashboard into our other privacy controls. It should always be easy for you to make meaningful decisions about your data-and we decided we could do better."

    The blog also informed about the changes that will be introduced, "The most important change was to improve usability on touchscreens, ensuring Dashboard works well on any device. We also worked to make it easier to see an overview of the Google products you use and your data in each of them. And we made the process for downloading data much easier."

    Security and privacy dashboard are not too often used by an average user, however, it seems like Google wants to change the scenario and make itself more open and easily accessible to users.
