Google announced it has been working on a new tool that will allow users to understand what data the company collects and the options available to control it, Wired reports. The new feature, called Your Data, will allow users to better understand why and what Google collects. To start, Google will introduce privacy controls within its search, allowing users to directly review and delete the activity log. Meanwhile, Mozilla is experimenting with a new privacy offering. While the company generates money through search-ad deals, Mozilla is offering a virtual private network service to users who want more privacy, offsetting lost revenue with a $10 monthly fee.
