We explained how you can remove your personal information from the search results.
Technology occupies a large place in our lives, and as such, privacy is getting less and less. Considering this situation, Google announced that information such as ID, phone number, e-mail and home address that allows users to be recognized from the results in search engines can be removed at the request of users. We told you how to remove personal information from Google search results.
Creating a request to remove personal information from Google search results
Announcing its new policy on its official blog, Google aims to give users more say in Google Search. This new policy allows users to remove login information from search results.
Before you can remove your personal information from Google search results, you need to fill out a request form to explain which information you want to be removed. There are two options in the request form. To start the process of removing personal information from Google search results, you need to tick the "Remove information you see in Google Search" option. Then you indicate that the content you want to be removed is in the "Google search results and website".
At this stage, Google asks you if you have spoken to the administrator of the site in question. “No, how do I do that?” When you select the option, Google displays a short article on how to contact the administrator of the website. If you choose the “No, I don't prefer” option, you can choose the nudity or obscene items, content about you on other sites for profit and personal information you want to remove, such as ID numbers and confidential documents.
In the form that opens to send your choices to Google, you need to enter information such as your name, country of residence, addresses of the web pages that display the content and Google search results pages, and keywords that enable the relevant content to be found in the search results. At the end of the form, you create and send your signature. Thus, you create a request to delete personal information.
Removing information from search results does not mean it has been removed from the internet.
Google says that it will evaluate the information removal requests it receives together with the content on the page where the information is located. It is stated that the reason for this is to prevent the restriction of access to useful general information for users, such as news. In addition, Google underlines that removing information from Google Search results does not mean removing it from the internet:
“Content can still be found on the web even if we remove it from Google Search. That is, the content in question may appear on the page on which it is hosted, or may be found through social media, non-Google search engines, or other means. Therefore, it may be helpful to contact the site's webmaster and ask them to remove the content.”
