The document describes how the company intends to use a system called “Cerebral Signals,” a way of “signaling” that your computer is in use by a different user than you intended, such as to help prevent malware or spam.
Google said it will use the new system to improve privacy.
“Google does not disclose your location to third parties, including advertisers,” the document said.
The new policy is set for public release in the coming weeks.
The company is also working on new software for its mobile devices.
“The Cerebral Signal system will help us build better privacy protections across our apps, our products and services, and our products’ privacy settings,” a Google spokesperson told the WSJ.
“We’re making progress, and we’re committed to working together to protect the privacy of our users.”
The company has been criticized in the past for making users sign up for its cloud service, Google Drive, and for blocking the use of some apps that were designed to make people feel safe.
But Google has repeatedly said it does not block apps or websites.
