Admin: update features with Google Workspace security interface

Quick Summary

Google has updated the “Security” category in the left navigation of the Admin Console by:

  • Add navigation access to security features that were previously only accessible from the Privacy Settings page.
  • Adds Authentication, Access & Data controls and Security Center subcategories, making it easier to find available features.
  • Update the name of the Privacy Settings page to Overview.

Google hopes these improvements will make it easier for admins to discover, access, and manage the Google Workspace suite of security tools.
