Android Future with New Google’s Privacy Director

4 April, 2013 Google

Google has done all it can to keep information about us safe and unexploited and now that the present Privacy Director is already retiring, many wonder what will happen to these efforts and how will Android fare in the future with the new head. A few months from now, Lawrence You will replace his predecessor and possibly continue what Alma Whitten has accomplished during her stint in the company.

Perhaps even more, since You will be able to manage directly in Mountain View as opposed to Whitten in London.

Google's job in protecting the privacy of millions of its users is big and is hard work. It is very easy to exploit user tracking and the company was once even involved in a similar issue with the EU that apparently "violated data protection". Another that seems to plague Google's privacy includes disclosure of personal info of users to app developers.

Patterns of individual internet usage are collected, without consent and this information may be used to provide users with personalized browsing experience but it could also act as a double-edged sword. As to how Lawrence You will keep all of our information safe without compromising the quality of browsing remains to be seen.
