About Google Settings

You can use Google Settings to manage settings for Google apps and services on any Android device that has Google Play installed. These settings help you:

  • Verify apps prior to installing to confirm if they’re potentially harmful to your device.
  • Clear third-party app data that’s being stored using cloud save.
  • Manage app access to your Google+ data.
  • Manage location settings, Location Reporting, and Location History.
  • Manage preferences for Search and Ads.
  • Use Android Device Manager to remotely locate and factory reset a lost device.
  • Generate verification codes for Google sign-in screens - even if your device is offline.
  • Manage sync preferences for Drive-enabled apps.
