search removal personal expanded contact requests information google include

ImranGoogle Search removal requests expanded to include personal contact information
Quote:Google has now expanded Google Search removal requests to include additional personally identifiable contact information, such as a person's phone number, email address, or physical address.

Up until now, people have been able to request the removal of other certain sensitive information from Search, such as doxxing content -- which is when a person's contact information is shared in a malicious way -- or information like bank account or credit card numbers that could be used for financial fraud.

Under the expanded policy, users can also request for the removal of additional information that may pose a risk for identity theft -- such as confidential log-in credentials -- when it appears in search results.
