Google Responds to Revenge Porn

Revenge porn...it's used to control a partner,  to expose them and most of all to humiliate. With a simple mouse click, an embarrassing image can become public not just to a select group, but can be viewed by dozens, hundreds, thousands or more.  And worse, that image lingers in the public domain. A simple search of someone 's name and anyone can view the image. Victims of on-line posting of unauthorized sexually explicit photos and videos feel intensely violated not only at the initial incident... but indefinitely, affecting relationships, employment, and an individuals entire on-line presence.

Google just announced a response to the problem- individuals can request that Google remove unauthorized pornographic images from search results. While the images remain on the Web and can be accessed  through the direct page link, they will not show up through Google search engines.  

Click here to ask Google to remove your sensitive personal information, like your bank account number, or an image of your handwritten signature, or a nude or sexually explicit image or video of you that’s been shared without your consent, from Google search results.
