Good to Know

We know that staying safe while navigating the web can be a challenge for many people. Today, we’re launching a new resource on the Google website, Good to Know, that makes learning about security and privacy even easier for our users.

Privacy policies and terms of service can often be long, complex and legalistic. Our goal with the Good To Know campaign is to provide people with practical guidance, like how to select a safe password or keep their online accounts secure. In the past few years, we’ve tried to make it easier for our users to learn about staying safe online by equipping them with a variety of tools through our Privacy, Security, and Family Safety centers.

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 one-stop-shop resource will make this information more accessible for everyone. Improving media literacy is a shared task, and we’ll continue to do our part to help empower and educate consumers.

This looks like a great resource, and I applaud it. I think it's very important for people to be aware of digital privacy issues, so they can know the credible security threats from the non-credible ones. I always hear people concerned about people "hacking" into their Facebooks or emails, which they assume is not dependent on the passwords they use. I think many people would be surprised if they knew just how much of the "hacking" they're afraid of is just clever ways of discovering users' passwords. I think many users would be surprised if they were told that.

With all that said, I think this is only the beginning. I think we need information like this to replace the legalese that accompanies every major product and service these days. Few people have the time and/or legal knowledge to read those things. We need a better way of establishing ground rules and understanding.
