Google Duo prepares an option to avoid that contact you using your e-mail account

It seems that it was yesterday, but it’s been four years since Google introduced us to the application of video calls Google Duo. From the beginning, the Duo stood out for being very simplewithout the need of user accounts. To speak with someone, only needed have your phone number.

With time, the simplicity of the Google Duo has been complicated, being able to bind the Google account (and your mail) to an account and use it on multiple devices at the same time. The next thing that would arrive would be an option to to avoid that you add using your e-maila setting of privacy that was still pending.


More privacy for Duo

If you want to communicate with someone for Duo, you need to have them in your contacts list in the application. Google Duo is synchronized with the contacts on the mobile, so you will see those phone numbers that are registered in the application. In some cases, the contacts are not linked to a phone number, but to an e-mail address.

When signing in with a Google account in the Google Duo, the e-mail is linked to your Duo account, so that other people can contact you from your e-mail. This can be quite invasive, especially if you have activated Knock Knock, so you can see the video of the other person before picking.

Mail

Luckily, as reveals Jane Manchunthe solution would be in the way. Currently Google Duo barely has settings and options, but is about to come to a choice to decide if you want to you can contact from your email. If active, it stays as it is today. Otherwise, only those who have your phone number be able to contact you.

As on other occasions, it is impossible to predict when you activate this option, which can take weeks to months. In the meantime, if you’re worried that contact you from the email address linked to your account, your only alternative is to unlink your Google account. You can carry out this process from the settings, even if you can’t then use your account on other devices or use it on a Google Home.
