About our SID activities

Our actions include:

Privacy Checkup
Privacy Checkup allows you to choose what types of data are saved to your Google Account, update what you share with friends or make public, and adjust the types of ads that you would like us to show you. You can change these settings as often as you want and even choose to have regular reminders sent.

Google Account - Easy-to-use privacy settings, all in one place!
You can find key information, privacy and security settings all in your Google Account. There are also powerful privacy controls such as Activity Controls and Ad Settings, which allow you to switch the collection and use of data on or off to decide how all of Google can work better for you.

Security Checkup
One easy way to protect your Google Account is to take the Security Checkup. This step-by-step tool gives you personalised and actionable recommendations to help to strengthen the security of your Google Account.

2-Step Verification
2-Step Verification helps to keep out anyone who shouldn’t have access to your account by requiring you to use a secondary factor on top of your username and password to log in to your account. For those who are at risk of targeted online attacks and need even stronger protections, we’ve created the Advanced Protection Programme.

Google Password Manager
A password manager helps to protect and keep track of the passwords that you use on sites and apps. Google’s Password Manager helps to you create, remember and securely store all your passwords to safely and easily sign in to your accounts.

Family Link
Family Link helps you manage your child’s account and devices as they explore online. Set screen-time limits, manage the content your child can see and know their location when they have their device with them.

Safety Center
To keep our users better informed and in control, Google Safety Center is a place to learn about our built-in security, privacy controls, and resources for families. Learn more at

What we are doing to support the SID 2022 slogan of "Together for a better internet"…

As a cultural moment dedicated to online safety, Safer Internet Day (SID) presents us with the opportunity to share more about how our relationship with technology over this past year has been evolving and is a relevant way to speak to our users about how Google can help you with being safe online.

About us

At Google, we are committed to making the internet a better, safer place for everyone. We believe making technology for everyone means protecting everyone who uses it.
