In a few months, you’ll probably want to look into getting a new driveway, as the world’s largest internet company is pushing for better privacy and transparency in its maps.
The company’s Maps team is now building tools that allow users to easily block unwanted access to their private spaces, and is also working to improve its privacy-focused Maps app.
The Maps team said it will make its mapping software available to developers this week.
The new privacy tools are similar to what Google already offers, but the company’s approach to privacy has been more thorough.
Google Maps, which offers real-time traffic and weather information for the United States, is the largest mapping platform in the world, and has long relied on privacy as a cornerstone.
The mapping service, which allows users to make phone calls, search the web, and access their Gmail, Google Drive, and other online accounts, has been widely used by the public.
Privacy advocates have long argued that the service is designed to keep users’ personal information private, and that the company does not protect it properly.
The privacy tools Google plans to release to developers include a tool called the ‘Google Map Blocker,’ which can be used to block users from accessing certain features of Google Maps.
The tool will block users of certain apps like Gmail and Google Drive from accessing Google Maps features that are meant to help them find and access nearby places.
For example, the tool blocks users from using Google Maps navigation and location services, and it will block Google Maps and Google Maps+ apps from accessing location data.
Users can also block the service from viewing locations in real-estate data.
The tools are meant for developers to add to their own apps to block the privacy-breaking features of the maps service, and for Google to help developers create apps that provide better user experience.
The ‘Google Blocker’ tool was first introduced in December, and Google says it will be released to developers on Wednesday.
Google also says the new tools will be available in the Google Maps app for Android and iOS devices in the next few weeks.
Google has been working on the privacy tools for a long time, and many privacy experts have questioned the company over its use of personal data for its maps services.
In September, Google admitted to the public that it was using data from the Google Analytics service to track users’ activities on the Maps platform, but maintained that it did not track users.
The issue was not resolved until Google disclosed the extent of the privacy problems in December.
The problems began to become public last month, when a Google employee leaked the Google data breach to a website called the InformationWeek blog.
The blog post included the names and passwords of more than a dozen Google employees.
In addition to the privacy issues, the leak also revealed how Google has attempted to hide information about its maps products and services from users, including by making Google Maps search results a whitelist that includes “only the most popular sites.”
Google’s Maps privacy issues came to light when Google launched a tool to help users find private places in real estate data.
Google said it had worked with the privacy experts at the Institute for Critical Infrastructure Technology (ICIT) to develop the privacy tool, and ICIT said it is working with Google to address the privacy concerns.
The Google Map Blockers will be made available to users on Wednesday, Google said.
