Manage your linked Google services

Important: This article is only for users within the EU.

The Digital Markets Act (DMA) is an EU law that took effect on March 6th, 2024. As a result of the DMA, in the EU, Google offers you the choice to link certain Google services.

These Google services include:

  • Search
  • YouTube
  • Ad services
  • Google Play
  • Chrome
  • Google Shopping
  • Google Maps

When linked, these services can share your data with each other and with all other Google services for certain purposes. All types of data described in Google's Privacy Policy can be shared across linked Google services. This includes your activity data when you’re signed in, such as things you search for and the videos you watch and listen to.

You can manage your choices of which services are linked in your Google Account.

Tip: Linking Google services is not about sharing your data with third-party services.
