Google Unified security and privacy settings is available for other devices too

To address some confusion I’ve seen: the new unified security & privacy settings that Google announced in the latest Pixel Feature Drop will NOT be Pixel-exclusive. It will roll out to other devices running Android 13 eventually. Google mentioned this during the launch of the Pixel 7, as we noted in this article.

As many users have noted, though, the unified security & privacy settings page hasn’t actually rolled out to Pixels despite Google’s announcement. It’s controlled by a flag, which you can toggle using ADB:

ADB shell cmd device_config put privacy safety_center_is_enabled true

The new unified security & privacy settings page (called Safety Center internally) is part of the Project Mainline module called PermissionController, which is required on all devices. That’s how it’ll be available on all Android 13 devices eventually.
