Children were allowed to remove their photos from Google search results

Google has allowed children to remove their photos from search results. Their parents or guardians can also do this. In order to be deleted, Google will ask you to provide some personal data of the minor. Not all pictures can be deleted – there are exceptions.

Children were allowed to remove their photos from Google search results

Instructions for deleting images of minors described on the Google blog.

The minor will be required to url the photos to be removed, the search terms for which the images appear in search results, and the name and age. Parents or guardians will be required to disclose the relationship.

Google has allowed any images of minors to be removed, but has introduced a broadly interpretable exception. Thus, pictures can be deleted in all cases, “except for those that arouse compelling public interest.”

In addition, it will not be possible to delete photos if the user is less than 18 years old on them, and is currently an adult. Google also clarified that removing images from search results does not mean removing them from the Internet.
