Google launches 'Data Transfer Project' to make it easier to switch services



A lot of new online services are cropping up every day, making our life a lot easier.

But it is always harder for users to switch to another product or service, which they think is better because the process usually involves downloading everything from one service and then re-uploading it all again to another.

Thanks to GDPR—stands for General Data Protection Regulation, a legal regulation by European Union that sets guidelines for the collection and processing of users' personal information by companies—many online services have started providing tools that allow their users to download their data in just one click.

But that doesn't completely simplify and streamline the process of securely transferring your data around services.

To make this easier for users, four big tech companies—Google, Facebook, Microsoft, and Twitter—have teamed up to launch a new open-source, service-to-service data portability platform, called the Data Transfer Project.
