Alphabet Inc.'s Google revealed in a press release on Wednesday that it will launch several privacy and security updates for Google Maps, YouTube and its Assistant service, along with the introduction of the Password Checkup, a feature that will notify users if there are security issues with their passwords.

Google Maps will now include Incognito mode, which will enable users to pick an option to keep sensitive information away from the app. It will be released for Android devices this month, while the iOS version is expected soon. The Auto-delete feature will be added to Youtube and it will help users to set a time period for their activity data to be kept.

Finally, the Assistant service will provide an easier way to remove private information with voice commands. English-speaking users will get to know the feature next week, while others will be introduced to it next month.
