Have you ever searched for your name online to see what other people can find out about you? You’re not alone. And for many people, a key element of feeling safer and more private online is having greater control over where their sensitive, personally-identifiable information can be found.
These days, it’s important to have simple tools to manage your online presence. That’s why we’re introducing a new tool in Google Search to help you easily control whether your personally-identifiable information can be found in Search results, so you can have more peace of mind about your online footprint.
You might have seen that we recently updated our policies to enable people to request the removal of sensitive, personally-identifiable information — including contact information, like a phone number, email address, or home address — from Search.
Now, we’re making it easier for you to remove results that contain your contact information from Google. We’re rolling out a new tool to accompany our updated policies and streamline the request process.
