Today Google has released it’s expanded version of Google Safety Center to six European countries including Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. The tool has been available in the United States for quite some time and more countries and languages will be available in the coming weeks.
Google Safety Center makes it easier to keep track of what data and privacy controls are made available to end users so that they can make an informed decision as to what is the right way for family members to access specific Google services. By using the Google Safety Center parents can find information and manage tools such as Family Link and YouTube kids to set rules and limits for access such as screen time limits.
Google Safety Centre also provides a bank of information to help parents access further advice on issues such as cyberbullying, excess screen time and oversharing on social networks. Parents will be able to ensure that everyone is safer online. As good as this is regular privacy checkups will be a great bonus for everyone to do regularly.
