Google has brought privacy controls to the fore with the introduction of revised interfaces in several of its apps and new features such as the ability for users to auto-delete their location and web activity history.

We've already covered the introduction of Incognito mode to Google Maps and YouTube, which prevents the company from logging the locations and videos that users look for, but it should also be noted that the mode will be coming to search as well.

The company is also highlighting its new machine learning profile called federated learning, where it is able to extract data from users without knowing who or where it came from.

What navigation system do you prefer?
