Google's new privacy settings page aims to gives users more control

Loek Essers | June 2, 2015
Google has launched a centralized hub that lets users manage the privacy and security controls of all its services, and introduced a site with information about these topics.

French privacy authority CNIL already fined Google €150,000last year. The Spanish data protection authority imposed a €900,000 fine on the company in 2013 for violating national laws with the privacy policy.

In the U.K., Google agreed to change its policy after regulatory pressure in January, while it also struck a deal with the Italian authority in February.

Monday's changes come after Google last week announced plans to give users more control over the information they provide to mobile apps in the next version of Android.

Google did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
