Google’s privacy practices

Google has made efforts to improve its privacy practices over time. Here's a summary of some of the practices and measures related to privacy:
  • Public Feedback and Testing: Google introduced a roadmap for privacy changes starting in 2022, where the first step involved sharing design proposals publicly for feedback, followed by updates to the proposal and early testing through developer previews​​.
  • New Privacy Features: In recent years, Google has been working on new privacy, safety, and security features. For instance, the Tensor G3 chipset in Pixel phones works alongside the Titan M2 security chip to enhance privacy and security against cyber threats. Additionally, Face Unlock on Pixel 8 has been updated to meet the strongest Android biometric class, making it suitable for secure banking and payment apps like Google Wallet​​.
  • Data Collection Practices: Google has faced criticism and lawsuits regarding its data collection practices. It has been claimed that Google constantly monitors users, collecting data through third-party cookies and other means even when individuals use other people's websites and apps​​.
In addition to the above, Google has introduced various tools and settings allowing users to control their data and privacy settings across its products and services. However, despite these efforts, concerns and legal challenges surrounding Google's privacy practices continue to be a significant aspect of its operation in the digital space.
