Good To Know – A Consumer privacy guide from Google

The European Public Policy blog of Google yesterday announced Good to Know,  a consumer advertising campaign designed to give people practical guidance on staying safe online. The aim of this service is to educate and create awareness among online citizens with regard to their privacy and data.

According to Google, most people would like to stay safe online but aren’t equipped to do so. The Good to Know site is the answer to the lack of an in-depth, easy to understand guide to privacy and security for the majority of internet users.

Today we’re also launching a new section of the Google website that makes learning about security and privacy easier for the average consumer. We know that in-depth resources like privacy policies and terms of service are often too long, complex and legalistic. In the past few years, we’ve tried to make it easier to learn about privacy by creating short videos and by working to reduce the length and complexity of our privacy policy. The new Good to Know website builds on this commitment to explaining things in simple language. The in-depth resources are still there, but we hope a more layered approach will make this information more accessible for everyone.
