Minors Can Now Remove Images of Themselves From Google Search Results

News Tech

Google has launched a new safety feature that allows anyone under the age of 18, or their parent or legal representative, to request Google to remove images of themselves from search results.

This feature was initially announced in August, and follows Google’s previous addition of avenues to remove harmful content from its search results, including non-consensual explicit imagery, financial and medical information, and “doxxing information”, to name a few.

The removal process can be started on Google’s help page, and is a step in the right direction for the software giant.
