Data security & privacy on Google Home
We take your privacy seriously. You can control what information is stored and shared with Google. Learn more about how we collect and protect your data when using Google Home.
You can share your personal preferences and other information in the settings for Google Home and through your interactions with the Google Assistant.
Here’s what data is collected when you choose to share device stats and crash reports using the “Help improve your device” setting.
Google Home uses information you permit it to access to provide better, more helpful answers through the Google Assistant. Third party services may share information with Google Home pursuant to their own privacy policies when you choose to use those services via Google Home.

Note: The services referred to below don’t include music, home control, news, and video services that work with Google Home.
For example, a service that recommends you concerts in your area can remember your music preferences so you don’t have to tell them each time.
For example, if you’re using a service to find local plumbers, it may ask:
“In order to recommend a plumber nearby, I’ll just need to get your street address from Google. Is that ok?”
You can accept or deny the request.
