Google has introduced new features for "Google Account" in a bid to make it easier for users to find necessary security and privacy features.

Google says the new update will help users to navigate their account more easily and offers "more prominent security and privacy options, and detailed summaries of relevant information associated with it — like your personal info, your devices, payment methods, purchases, subscriptions, reservations, and contacts".

Besides, users can also utilise the recently updated Privacy Checkup to review their privacy settings. It will also explain how these shape the user's experience across Google services.

"You can now more easily find your Activity controls in the Data & Personalization tab and choose what types of activity data are saved in your account to make Google work better for you. There, you'll also find the recently updated Privacy Checkup that helps you review your privacy settings and explains how they shape your experience across Google services," it added.

The revamped Google Accounts is available from today for all Android users and will be available to iOS and web users later this year.

In October, Google had updated its Security Checkup to provide users with an overview of account security and personalised recommendations.

"The new Google Account experience builds on this and will show you prominent notices if we detect there's something you can do to improve your security. For example, we might suggest you remove your account from old devices you're no longer using or remove unverified apps you had granted access to your account data," the Google executive added.
