Google's Results About You will tell ya what the web knows about... you

Google has a new tool to help you manage your online presence.  "Results About You" (not to be confused with the site), the idea being you can start to have a spot that aggregates what is said about you online, what website have about you in various spots, giving you the option to request removal, or ... just know.

Currently, it's not ready for me just yet, but they say by the next couple of weeks everybody in Canada will have access.


Google is rolling out Results About You to Canada, a tool that makes it easier to find and request the removal of personal contact information, such as personal phone numbers, home address or email, from Search results. 


As part of Google’s ongoing commitment to making Search safer and giving users transparency and control over their experience on the web, Results About You proactively monitors the web for Search results that contain your personal contact information and enables you to immediately request removal from Search. 


Features include:

  • A dashboard that will let you know if web results with your contact information are showing up on Search, with the ability to quickly request the removal of those results from Google - right in the tool.
  • Notifications for when new results from the web containing your contact info pop up in Search, to give you added peace of mind. 


Starting today, Results About You is rolling out to Canada on web, and will be available to Canadians coast-to-coast in the next few weeks. You can access the feature by visiting It will also be available via the Google app later this month, by clicking on your Google account photo and selecting “Results about you”.
