Google Shows How Much of Your Data is Stored
Google is today launching a new feature called Dashboard. Designed to give you better control of the data that is being stored on various different Google services, the search giant is labeling Dashboard as another positive step toward user privacy.
At one time or another you've probably wondered what kind of information Google has on you. If you're constantly connected there's a good chance you're using more than one or two Google services. So how much of your data is Google storing?
With the help of Dashboards, Google wants to show you exactly how much information it has on you. You can also change your settings if you're not happy with the information being stored.
Dashboard covers more than 20 products and services, including Gmail, Calendar, Docs, Web History, Orkut, YouTube, Picasa, Talk, Reader, Alerts, and Latitude - and Google believes the scale and level of detail of the Dashboard is unprecedented.
