ICYMI: Aug 9 - Aug 15

ICYMI is posted every Monday recapping privacy news over the last week from around the web.


Giving kids and teens a safer experience online

While we already provide a range of removal options for people using Google Search, children are at particular risk when it comes to controlling their imagery on the internet. In the coming weeks, we’ll introduce a new policy that enables anyone under the age of 18, or their parent or guardian, to request the removal of their images from Google Image results. Of course, removing an image from Search doesn’t remove it from the web, but we believe this change will help give young people more control of their images online.

Another tool in the box to help those with kids, or are kids themselves, remove their images from Google's image results. It doesn't remove it from the internet entirely but every bit helps.

Light week in new privacy news this week.
