Google now lets users remove personal data from search results
You can request personal information be removed from Google results

Your personal information can now be removed from Google results

These are the Personally Identifiable Information like phone numbers, physical addresses, and email addresses. The new policy is intended to prevent users from using people's personal information for malicious reasons such as identity theft or stalking in person.

You can already request that Google delete personal information from search engine results but National ID numbers, banking information, and credit card numbers, as well as photographs of your personal signature and medical data, were your only options.

You may also request that any of your login credentials be removed from Google's search results. The tool's users may be able to defend themselves against computer hacking and identity theft techniques.

To start a removal request, go to Google's support page on the topic, which will question you for the URL containing the personally identifiable information. Users can input up to 1,000 URLs in the form. If Google appears to agree, the URL containing the sensitive personal data may be deleted from all search results. In other cases, the URL will only be removed if the search query includes your name.

What do you guys think?
