Google first launched Consent Mode in 2020, a crucial feature for everyone, offering the advantage of enabling websites to use Google’s tracking technologies (Cookies) based on user consent while still maintaining the ability to analyze data or marketing targets.

In the digital era, users or data owners give more importance to User Privacy. Well-known laws or regulations from various countries, such as GDPR in the European Economic Area (EU) and the Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA) in Thailand, allow users to control their data. Users can choose whether or not to consent to websites and applications using their data for behavior analysis or advertising. This impacts businesses and marketers who rely on data for precise analysis and advertising. Consequently, Google developed the Consent Mode feature to allow websites and apps to collect data while still respecting User Privacy significantly (Read more about Google Consent Mode).

What's New in Google Consent Mode v2?

Consent Mode v2, launched in November 2023, is an advancement from the previous version, enhancing efficiency and compliance with legal requirements. It introduces new parameters for sending Consent States to Google Services and two new Consent Signals:

"ad_user_data": Defines consent for sending personal user data to Google.

"ad_personalization": Determines whether data can be used for personalized advertising (such as remarketing).
