Building a safer,
more trusted Internet.

Today, we have Google teams working across privacy, security, content responsibility and family safety around the world. Most of this Internet safety work happens in our Google Safety Engineering Centres in Munich and Dublin, led by experienced teams of engineers, policy specialists and subject matter experts. By understanding the problem, developing solutions, partnering with others and empowering users everywhere, we can build a better, safer Internet for all.

Germany is where the debate on protecting personal data in many ways began. In 2009, Google moved a significant part of its online security and data privacy work to Munich. Now, it’s extending its commitment to Germany and Internet safety with the Google Safety Engineering Centre.

Privacy and security are essential and highly personal, and both should be effortless to achieve.

We aim to equip users with controls to determine data that they feel comfortable sharing with Google and to choose how long they consider that data to be helpful. Intuitive designs make it simple for users to find, use and manage their data and privacy preferences.

We want users to be in control of their online privacy and security without them having to worry about it. Users want to browse the Internet, and we need to provide them with safe and reasonable default settings when they do so.

Everyone has a right to privacy regardless of resources or technical skill. Our goal is to build tools that enable everyone to choose what's right for them and what they're doing at that moment.

People should be able to browse the Internet safely, while feeling in control of their experience. Strong default protections and easy-to-use privacy and security settings are the cornerstones of user safety online and our daily ambition.
