Privacy news x2 at Google

Google announced new policies for Chrome Extensions and new settings for Smart features this week.

Changes to Chrome will require developers to 1) be more transparent with consumers about data that’s requested, 2) show what data is collected, and 3) provide detailed information about the extension’s privacy practices. Google is also adding a policy as of January that limits what data developers can collect and what it can be used for.

Smart feature changes will give users new settings to control whether to turn on “smart” features in Gmail, Meet and Chat, given that doing so may require granting Google additional data permissions.
