Several of the biggest tech companies attending CES, the closely watched trade show in Las Vegas this week, are putting a special emphasis on user privacy.
Google announced on Tuesday that it has added two new voice commands for people to better control their privacy when using its voice assistant. Facebook announced a new version of its “Privacy Checkup” tool with the goal of walking users through their key privacy settings. Ring, the home security and video doorbell company owned by Amazon, announced an update to its app.
Apple is also returning to CES this year for the first time since former CEO John Sculley debuted the Newton personal digital assistant in 1992. But the company isn’t at the show to unveil a new product. It’s coming to talk privacy.
