Google launches Google Dashboard

Google has launched a new whizzy tool that lets you view and control data associated with your Google account. This is apparently for greater data transparency and control, which is exactly what all you ham-fisted keyboard bashers out there need.

Should you feel the need to keep a check on your Google use, just nip along to Google Dashboard which gives you a summary of all the data, as well as a breakdown of all your clicks, like with your email (Gmail, natch) and your internet search history.

‘We think of this as a great step towards giving people transparency and control over their data, and we hope this helps shape the way the industry thinks about these issues,’ said Alma Whitten, Software Engineer on Privacy and Safety. ‘It's important for people to be aware of what data they have online and to be able to manage that data - Google Dashboard should help to make this a reality.’
