Use Voice Commands To Quickly Check Your Google Security Settings

Android: It’s a good idea to check on your Google security and privacy settings every once in a while. Google makes it even easier with a few handy voice commands that can jump right to the important parts of your account.

As highlighted by Android Police, Google offers a few key voice commands that can jump to important places in your account, including your search history and privacy settings. Here are the most useful commands:

  • “Show me my Google account” will open a basic settings section of your Google account.
  • “Show my Google search history” will show you your search activity and let you delete anything you don’t want in there.
  • “Adjust my Google privacy settings” will launch the Google Privacy Checkup.
  • “Adjust my Google security settings” will run the Google Security Checkup and let you change information like your recovery phone and email or your security question.

These commands are handy if you need to check or change your Google account settings. On the flipside, this is also a good example of why you should lock your phone. Google makes you enter your password to change most things, but you don’t want someone poking around in your account with a voice command just because you left your phone lying around.
