Google today published a letter to congress in hopes to assuage fears that it is drastically changing its privacy policies. Google explained that the policies themselves are not changing at all. Google said that private information will remain private and won't be shared or made visible. Google is still allowing the public to get driving directions on Google Maps, and perform other tasks without signing into a Google Account. Google will still offer the Google Dashboard tool, which allows users to see and control their Google data. Google will still offer its data liberation tools so that users may close their Google accounts and take their data elsewhere. The goal of this consolidation effort is to make it easier for consumers to access and digest Google's privacy policies and make user data available to those users across all Google products when users are signed into its services. Congress had asked Google to provide an explanation for the planned changes, which go into effect March 1.
