The 2016 US election saw some major uproar from the government, as well as from country people about the certain involvement of the foreign agency in swaying the votes toward current President, Donald Trump. 

In the October’s Congressional hearings, along with Facebook and Twitter, Google’s arm was also twisted for violation of privacy policies, but due to the high intensity of Cambridge Analytica scandal, Google was a bit spared as compared to other tech giants.

But this time well before the 2018 midterm elections, Google has announced new transparency measures to diffuse any misunderstanding or breach of trust.

To make it more clear, Kent Walker, Senior Vice President of Google, conveyed the company’s intentions about its privacy policies through a blog post which stated,

Google also announced improvements to its Advance Protection Program which now includes support for native Apple iOS apps, protecting users of those programs which are vulnerable to phishing scams or hacking, like journalists or campaign staff. 

Google likewise declared enhancements to its “Advance Protection Program” which now incorporates bolster for Apple iOS applications, securing user of those projects which are helpless against phishing tricks or hacking.

Kent further added,

 

The focus of Google is to secure its platform and work with campaigns, elections officials, journalists, and others to help ensure the security of the online platforms that they depend on.

Google is working extensively to offer full election advertising transparency, to improve online security for campaigns and candidates, and to help combat misinformation.
