Google launched in 2015 an own website so that any user could you spend a few minutes checking the security of your account with my account. A web space where you can configure various security settings, check your privacy and even perform other actions that are related to your account. My account puts in one place a lot of controls for privacy and security for so be aware of the locations from which performed logins, among others of the different options you have.
Google has stated that, since it was launched the service last year, more than 1,000 million people worldwide have used my account or My Account. On his first birthday, Google has added three new features that give users more avenues for quick and easy access, control and protection of their personal data. Among these three characteristics is “Find your phone”, which helps you locate your smartphone if been lost or deleted. This feature allows users a way to locate it, lock it, and even to call it. Added the option to get in contact with the operator to disable the device if it was needed.
A year of my account
Google what he has done to celebrate the first anniversary of my account is to provide another way to search for that lost smartphone that can come in very handy to the users. So, in the near future, if you want to “I lost my phone”, is it will take you directly to the portal called “Is your phone”. If you have a device, choose three options: find it, make it sound or block it.
One of the differences of this service, is that if you have an iPhone you will receive instructions to stop by iCloud.com to find it. Anyway, you can log out of your Gmail account if you want.
Another series of novelties are related to the same to redirect users to my account. If you have already updated the Google app, say the command “Show me my Google account” you should lead directly to the mentioned web space. This capability is available in English at the moment, but it is being deployed into more languages. In the future, the search for your name as long as you have started the meeting, will show you a link to my account at the top of search results.
What is my account?
As he cries out the wording that is in my mind, this space allows you to access tools to protect your data and your privacy, and decide how you want your information to help improve the performance of the tools and services of Google.
For that you have three main sections: login and security, where you can control your password and access the account settings; personal information and privacy, which lets you manage your visibility on the Web and data used Google to personalize the experience; and the account preferences, where you can set language, accessibility, and other settings that will help you use Google.
Noteworthy is the option ‘Security review’ with which, in a matter of minutes, you can review all the security settings that you have in your hand for your account safe. You can see from my account even when it was the latest revision you made, we recommend that every little bit you go all walk perfectly.
It is right under “Security patch” where you can access the option “Find your mobile”, in which Google has made the greatest efforts in this update so that users have better tools in his hand in managing the security and privacy of your account and, therefore, your phone.
Check your account in a few minutes from my account.
