Google launch of Dashboard privacy control

GOOGLE has launched a new &ldquo;dashboard&rdquo; control panel to help users adjust their privacy settings.<br /><br />Google Dashboard gives users access to all their Google account privacy controls through a single portal.<br /><br />The Google Dashboard pulls in all the information stored on Google&rsquo;s accounts including details of emails, website visits and YouTube videos viewed. It also allows users to easily delete items from their online history.<br /><br />Google said the dashboard was designed to give people &ldquo;greater transparency and control&rdquo; over personal account data stored by Google. <br /><br />&ldquo;You can see in one place a summary of the data in all the Google products you use,&rdquo; Google in a statement. &ldquo;You can also manage this data and change settings easily and quickly.&rdquo;<br /><br />The dashboard gives one-click access to Google services, including recent search history, emails, and attachments and chat conversations.<br /><br />The web search giant says this gives<br /><br />&ldquo;an unprecedented level of visibility and control over that data&rdquo;.<br /><br />Google said that it would also mean users could rediscover long-forgotten accounts and decide whether to resurrect them or delete them.<br /><br />To access Dashboard, log in to
