New Google Privacy Tools Helps Hide Explicit Data

Google introduces new privacy tools that will give users more control over unwelcome personal images posted online and ensure that explicit or graphic images don’t show up frequently in search results.

Users will now have the ability to delete explicit and non-consensual photographs of themselves from searches thanks to a recent amendment to Google’s policies regarding personal explicit images.

With the new Google Privacy tools anyone who has generated and uploaded explicit content to a website and later decides they no longer want it to be accessible through search can simply ask for Google to remove it.

Get Notified When Searched

Users will be able to see search results that include their contact information thanks to a new Google dashboard, which will initially only be made available in the US in English. Users can easily add their request for Google to remove certain search results. The tool will also notify the user when fresh search results with information about them appear.

Safe Search

To safeguard their users from explicit images and results, Google Privacy Tools includes a new feature called SafeSearch.

SafeSearch is also for the parents wanting to make the internet a safe and knowledgeable experience for their children. It can be used as a good parental control over the content being presented to the toddlers.

Parents can use Google Privacy tools to hide explicit search results from their children. This month, the new SafeSearch function will become available, making it simpler for users to delete private, explicit photographs from Search.

Google has issued a warning, however, stating that despite its ability to delete search results, the content will still be available online.

How to Use Google Privacy Tools?

As a Google user who is logged in, you will see these tools for removing personal information. Simply seek for the Results About You option by clicking on your user profile photo in the upper right corner of any Google page. You are then taken to the updated dashboard. However, If you don’t see the dashboard right away, you may still find personal information in search results by using the traditional method of Googling your name.

The dashboard is rolling out to consumers in the US this week.

You can select the three-dot menu in the top right corner of a search result if it displays your home address, email, or phone number. obsolete information will be listed as a choice under “Remove Result.”

Google will ask you to provide a reason after you choose it. Choose if the information is obsolete, contains personal contact information, or is intended to cause you harm from the list of possible reasons to remove the result.
