Google Tool removes personalized advertisement with your data

Google has a tool that allows you to manage what kind of advertisement appears to you. The platform is interesting because it is based on personal data, so it reveals what Google knows about you and your preferences. The advertising management dashboard already existed but now brings options to remove advertising related to certain subjects, websites visited or companies. In addition, the user can know what information influences the display of certain banners, links, and other line items on the Internet.

The tool, it should be remembered, only has an effect on content managed by the Google ad network. It includes advertising on search and on applications and sites that use the monetization platform. See the following tutorial on how to access and adjust the ad settings for your Google account.
