Google is Working on Guest Mode for Assistant and First Party App Critical Alerts

The month of October has been set aside for raising awareness about the problems that are facing user security and privacy on the internet as well as basically any digital medium out there, and this means that Google will be taking advantage of this to try and repair the reputation that it has ended up getting with regards to the kind of security as well as privacy that it offers to the average user all in all at the end of the day.

With all of that having been said and out of the way, it is important to note that there are two new things that are being rolled out pretty soon that are going to help you feel more secure on the internet. The first of these two happen to be critical security alerts being shown in all first party apps that Google currently has to offer at this point in time. Your profile icon would get a red ring around it as well as an exclamation mark if some kind of a threat is detected, and Google is clearly hoping that this would encourage users to end up taking these things a lot more seriously than might have been the case otherwise.

Another feature that Google is working on has to do with Google Assistant. Sometimes you want to make it so that whatever you are saying to your Assistant is not going to end up being recorded in any way, shape or form, and the new guest mode that will probably be coming soon is going to help with that. This guest mode is a lot like incognito mode in Google Chrome, and it has the potential to give users a lot more privacy as well as control over how their data is saved and used.
