Google has introduced a new tool called “Results About You” that aims to enhance user privacy and help users manage their personal information online. The tool alerts users whenever their contact details, such as phone numbers, addresses, or emails, appear in Google search results. With this notification, users can request Google to remove the specific information from search results.
The “Results About You” feature was initially introduced last year, and now it is accessible in the US. Users can access the feature on both smartphones and the web. After entering their personal information on the dashboard, the tool automatically scans websites containing matching information. Users can review each webpage and request the removal of specific details.
Google plans to roll out the dashboard in the coming days, notifying users if web results with their contact details are displayed in search results. Additionally, users will be alerted when new results from the web containing their information appear in search.
To access this tool, users can tap on their Google account photo in the Google app and select “Results about you,” or visit goo.gle/resultsaboutyou. Currently, the tool is available only in the US and in English.
However, Google is working on expanding its availability to more locations and languages.
