Manage Google Settings on Your Phone

Can you remember a time when the answer to nearly every question wasn't "Google it"? Neither can we. You’ll always have all the answers with Google on your phone. Plus, you can tailor your phone’s Google settings to match your preferences.

Available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider and software version.

Google Settings

When you're meeting a friend for lunch in a new area, your phone has it mapped out for you. Or maybe you want to know what restaurants are nearby. Your phone also has you covered. You can set up your Google location, Nearby preferences, or alter other Google settings.

  1. Navigate to Apps and touch Settings.

  2. Navigate to and touch Google.

    The following settings are available:

    • Ads: Configure your Google advertising profile.

    • Location: Configure your Google location settings.

    • Nearby: You will receive links to apps or websites from objects or places nearby.

    • Security: Configure the Android Device Manager and apps security settings.

    • Set Up Nearby Device: Use Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to set up another device.

    • Search: Configure settings for Google search and Google Assistant.
