Advanced encryption keeps your data safe in transit

Encryption brings a higher level of security and privacy to our services. When you send an email, share a video, visit a website, or store your photos, the data you create moves between your device, Google services, and our data centers. We protect this data with multiple layers of security, including leading encryption technology like HTTPS and Transport Layer Security.

Proactive security alerts help protect your private information

We’ll proactively notify you if we detect something we think you should know about - like a suspicious login or a malicious website, file, or app - and we’ll provide guidance to help you stay better protected. When we detect something suspicious in your account, we’ll send a notification to your inbox or phone so you can protect your account with one click.

Threats detected and blocked automatically

Safe Browsing protects 4 billion devices every day, including yours. To make the internet safer for everyone, we made this technology available free of cost for other companies to use in their browsers, including Apple’s Safari and Mozilla’s Firefox. So you’re protected as you browse on Google and beyond.

Easy-to-use privacy tools
that put you in control.
