Google wants to help remove your personal information from search results

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

After opening the Google app on Android devices, some users can tap 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 takes them to a new page explaining how to ask Google to remove personally identifiable information (opens in new tab) from search results. That data includes phone numbers, postal addresses, email addresses, and more.
