Google Will Now Let Users Remove Sensitive Personal Information From Search Results

Google seriously cares about the personal information of its users.

The company has a long history of developing Internet security technology that benefits its own users and the online world as a whole.

Over the years, it has become increasingly challenging to keep personal information off the web — but thanks to Google’s updated policies, users are now able to take more control of their online presence in search by heading to the Google support section and clicking on remove personal information.

Google users can now request personal information — such as phone numbers, email addresses and home addresses — to be removed from search engines. The policy expansion also enables people under the age of 18, or their parents or guardian, to request the removal of their images from Google Search results.

According to Google, being able to request the removal of personal information from the web for safety purposes isn’t a new feature.

For many years, people have been able to request the removal of certain sensitive, personally identifiable information from Search, per the blog post. This applies to cases of doxxing — when personal info, like addresses, are shared publicly with malicious intent — or for information like bank account or credit card numbers that could be used for financial fraud.

Google is making it possible for you to protect your personal information further by allowing removal requests for additional types of information that may pose a risk for identity theft, such as confidential log-in credentials, when it appears in Search results.

Once your request is submitted, you’ll get an automated email confirming your request. 

Please note that Google may ask for additional information: for example, a web address if there’s one missing from the original request submission.

When all of the information is submitted and the request has been processed, Google will notify you of any action taken in regard to your request.

It’s important to state Google may deny a removal request if it’s public utility information. 

When Google receives removal requests, they will “evaluate all content on the web page” to ensure that they’re not “limiting the availability of other information that is broadly useful, for instance in news articles.” Additionally, if the content appears as a public record on the sites of government or official sources, they won’t proceed with the removal.

Augmented Reality Can Prevent Blindspot-Based Vehicular Mishaps On Busy Motorways

Augmented Reality Can Prevent Blindspot-Based Vehicular Mishaps On Busy Motorways


Augmented Reality Can Prevent Blindspot-Based Vehicular Mishaps On Busy Motorways

The involvement of augmented reality (AR) in smart cities and the safety systems of modern vehicles promises to resolve a frequent cause of vehicular accidents—blindspots.

In automotive speak, blindspots are defined as the external spaces that the driver of a vehicle cannot see while driving. External visibility is generally poor for drivers because, apart from the zones visible through the glass areas and the ones reflected by the rear-view and wing mirrors in vehicles, they cannot see much else outside. This may seem like an insignificant problem at first, but dive deeper into the numbers, and you’ll find that about 840,000 crashes and 300 deaths occur every year due to blindspot-related accidents. 

The implementation of AR in smart cities and modern vehicles can be seen as a remedy for this issue. Recently, AR and VR-driven simulations have steadily emerged in vehicular safety testing. So, if vehicle manufacturers need to resolve the blindspot problem, they can look towards a few promising AR-driven concepts and solutions.

Heads-Up Windshield Display

Several vehicles manufactured by companies such as BMW, Bentley, Audi and many others have AR-based heads-up windshield systems that allows drivers to focus on the road ahead instead of being distracted by information on their vehicle’s dashboard infotainment systems. Heads-up display systems involve road signage as well as pedestrian and vehicle proximity data being displayed on the windshield of the vehicle. As you know, the possibilities are endless when it comes to AR, safety and visibility tools. So, manufacturers can configure such systems to project the visuals of pedestrians and other vehicles approaching or standing in blindspot areas of their vehicles (regardless of whether they’re static or in motion). This will let drivers see a simulation of pedestrians or vehicles in blindspots on the windshield of their vehicles, avoiding several accidents in the process.

See-Through Pillars and Panels

This is a slightly more unrealistic way of using AR for blindspot elimination. According to this concept, AR can be used to project the simulated visuals of a vehicle’s external environment on its pillars and other internal panels, vastly improving external visibility for drivers. Several concepts similar to this are currently in various stages of development. The success of this idea will greatly enhance the safety aspect of vehicles of the future.

 

On a basic level, blindspots are a result of the anatomy of vehicles today and will cease to exist if future vehicles are built differently. Until then, the use of AR in smart cities and connected modern vehicles can help reduce the number of accidents caused by blindspots.
