Privacy and security are two sides of the same coin: if your information isn’t secure, it certainly can’t be private.

It also provides more context to help you understand your options and make the right choices for you.
Here are some of the things you can do with My Account:
- Take the Privacy Checkup and Security Checkup, our simple, step-by-step guides through your most important privacy and security settings.
