Google is trying to create a new brand through a series of new privacy controls to give users more control over their personal information. However, this move may not be consistent with its basic business of online search advertising. Users’ information is of great value to advertisers, but more and more people are paying more and more attention to privacy, and regulators and competitors such as Apple are resisting it. Because of this pressure, the company is now trying to convert many of its products to “privacy by design.” At the Google I/O Developer Conference held on Tuesday, the company announced new privacy protection measures, including the ability to quickly clear the last 15 minutes of search history, and a new password lock on Pixel and other Android devices and locations.

The photo folder keeps track of reminders in Google Maps. There will also be an advanced password manager that can be used on all devices and will warn users if a password is discovered in the event of a data breach. This is what other password managers have done before, but now it is built into Chrome. Android’s new privacy policy includes the ability to save application history (used to access the camera, phone microphone, or location), and to prevent certain applications from accessing these functions and only provide the application with an approximate location. Last month, Apple introduced a new app tracking transparency control, and iPhone users can now turn off the tracking of their in-app activity.

Based on the data collected in response to these changes, only about 3% of users opted for app tracking. Google has previously stated that this change may have a “significant impact” on advertising revenue, and the company has not yet announced a product similar to Android. They said they are studying their “joint learning” model to figure out how to target specific interests rather than individuals. Foel Fadaghi, Telsyte’s chief analyst, said that Google’s motive may be to avoid possible future supervision. “Google is taking a small step.” they said: “To meet user expectations by improving the privacy features of future products.” Perhaps, under the threat of future regulations, even if it sacrifices its advertising business, it will do better than its competitors. “Faithful Google users (with five or more Google devices) have been concerned about privacy issues. More than half (58%) agreed to: “I do my best not to disclose my personal information on the Internet.” This is an increase of 8% over last year and more than Apple’s loyal user percentage.

Google can even provide users with options through future profitable privacy features (such as YouTube and other advertising removal fees). Google is committed to extending AI processing to the Android device itself. For example, if “real-time subtitles” or “smart replies” are enabled, the messages that should be placed in emails and text pens will be recognized on the device, and It will not be uploaded to Google for processing. Last month, the Australian antitrust agency filed a lawsuit against Google on how Google informed customers that they can choose not to track their location information between 2017 and 2018. In this regard, Google stated that it has “strict” privacy controls on location data. Users can now choose to automatically delete their location history.
