Google wants to help remove your personal details from its search results

Computer



Google has started rolling out a new feature that should help users strengthen their online privacy (opens in new tab) by helping remove personally identifiable information (PII) from search engine results pages. 

After opening the Google app on Android devices some users can tap on their profile picture in the top right corner of the screen. There, they will find a new menu item, called “Results about you”. Tapping on that menu item brings them to a new page that explains how they can ask Google to remove personally identifiable information (opens in new tab) from search results. That data includes the likes of phone numbers, postal addresses, email addresses, and more.
