Google Account dashboard is being revamped to make managing privacy settings easier
Google is redesigning the Google Accounts dashboard on Android, to allow users to more easily navigate the different security and privacy options on offer, the Mountain View, Claifornia-based search giant announced today. The revamped dashboard is launching today on Android, though iOS and web versions are also in the works, slated for release later this year.

The new Google Account page makes navigating the different settings easier, thanks to some newly-added summaries and visual cues that explain what some of the options do. There's also a new, dedicated support section as well, should you have troubles finding a solution to a problem.

"We’ve added new features in your Google Account to make it even easier to review and control this data. We’ve introduced a new search functionality that enables you to find settings and other info you might be looking for in your account, like how to change your password," writes Google Account PM Jan Hannemann in a blog post announcing the update. "When you have a problem but don't quite know what to look for, you can access a new dedicated support section as well. There, you'll find help with common tasks, like upgrading your account storage, and get answers from community experts."

If you don't know where a certain setting resides, you can now use the convenient search feature that lets you easily surface the information you're looking for.

Android users will start seeing the new dashboard today, although the rollout is staged, as is usual with Google services. The revamped Google Accounts page will be made available on iOS and the web later this year.
