  • Google is rolling out a beta of its Privacy Sandbox to select Android phones.
  • Access to Sandbox will give you a finer level of control over your privacy, especially regarding targeted ads.
  • You’ll need an Android 13 phone to get the beta, and you can opt-out anytime.

In 2022, Google announced Privacy Sandbox. This new initiative attempts to give users more control over their privacy while still supporting systems that make money from user data. So far, the Sandbox has only been tested by people electing to give it a shot. That changes today, however.

Today, Google is rolling out Privacy Sandbox beta support to Android phones. Select devices with Android 13 installed will start to receive access to Sandbox soon. You’ll know if you’re in because you’ll receive a notification as such. Once you’re in, you’ll have access to the Sandbox and can use it as much as you like. Controls for the Sandbox will appear in your phone’s Settings panel.
