Google knows privacy is a huge concern, especially when it comes to voice assistants and smart speakers. To that end, the company has introduced a revamped security center where you can access all of your privacy settings.

While guest mode sounds like something to visitors to your home, that̵
Enabling guest mode is also easy. Just say, “Hey Google, enable guest mode.” When you’re ready for personalized results again, tell them to turn off guest mode. You can access guest mode on smartphones and Nest Hub devices.
Google also brings you some other new security features, such as: B. Cross-app notifications. Have you ever signed into Gmail and received a suspicious prior sign-in message? It probably told you about a recent login that seemed to come from an unusual location.
This is a useful feature, but not if you are not signing into the service that is having the problem. From now on, you no longer have to be in Gmail to see this warning. You can be in any Google app and be notified of a suspicious warning.
If you’re struggling to find security settings, the latest change from Google will help too. You can now search for phrases like “Is my Google Account Safe?” Search. to find a summary of your security settings and make changes.
These are small but welcome steps that you can take to take control of your security and privacy around Google Accounts. Good stuff.
