Google has added the ability to set a password for the My Google Activity page, which shows all activity across all Google services, including searches, YouTube browsing history, and Google Assistant hits. Previously, anyone who accessed the device with an active Google account could have viewed all these actions.
To enable password protection for your data, you need to go to activity.google.com and click on the link “Configure verification to access the history of my actions.” Here you need to select the option “Enable additional verification,” save and enter a password to verify your identity. If you leave everything unchanged, when you open the page activity.google.com, a feed will be displayed with the user’s last actions in Google services, which were carried out on all his devices.
The ability to protect web browsing history will be a handy feature, especially for computer users, since several people often use them at once. These can be family members or work colleagues.
At the Google I / O conference, the company paid special attention to security and privacy. In particular, a separate folder with personal photos should appear on Android, as well as the ability to delete browsing history in the Chrome browser for the last 15 minutes.
