Abstract image of a digital identity surrounded by web technologies that protect online privacy. Building a more private internet

The Privacy Sandbox technologies aim to make current tracking mechanisms obsolete, while giving publishers, developers, and advertisers what they need for their business. Learn more about the Privacy Sandbox proposals, going deeper into how they reduce cross-site and cross-app tracking.

How it works

Dive deeper into Privacy Sandbox's proposals to deliver the key advertising use cases on the web and on Android.

Topics API

The Topics API is a Privacy Sandbox proposal for a mechanism to enable interest-based advertising, without having to resort to tracking the sites a user visits or the apps they use.

FLEDGE API

The FLEDGE API is a new way to remind you of sites and products you’ve been interested in, without relying on third-party cookies or cross-app identifiers that track your individual activity.

Attribution Reporting API

The Attribution Reporting API is a Privacy Sandbox proposal that will help advertisers measure the performance of their online ads without needing to track people’s activity across websites and apps.
