Google [GOOG] has launched a new service called Google Dashboard, which is designed to provide users of Google services with great transparency and control over their own data.
Google Dashboard basically shows you all the data that Google holds for the various Google services you use, like Gmail, Google Calendar, Web History, YouTube, Gtalk and lots more, check out the video below which explains how Google Dashboard works.
Over the past 11 years, Google has focused on building innovative products for our users. Today, with hundreds of millions of people using those products around the world, we are very aware of the trust that you have placed in us, and our responsibility to protect your privacy and data. In the past, we’ve taken numerous steps in this area, investing in educating our users with our Privacy Center, making it easier to move data in and out of Google with our Data Liberation Front, and allowing you to control the ads you see with interest-based advertising. Transparency, choice and control have become a key part of Google’s philosophy, and today, we’re happy to announce that we’re doing even more.
