PlusPrivacy – a free consumer online privacy management service funded by the European Commission – has released a major upgrade. Among other things, the new version supports automatic management of Google account privacy settings.
Properly configuring social network privacy settings is a major hassle for most of the users: the settings may be scattered over up to 6 pages in a social network account. The chances of users configuring all their privacy preferences correctly, or configuring them at all, are low. The PlusPrivacy service (available through Chrome and FireFox browsers and iOS/Android apps) configures user preferences to their most privacy-friendly values in a single click. Users do not need to dig into the settings of each of their social network accounts – PlusPrivacy dashboard is all they need. The single click privacy setting is supported for Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn – and now also for Google.
