This form enables you to request that sharing of these images and videos be restricted on Google products, including:

Frequently asked questions

Which URLs do I submit for review?

How do I submit more than one URL for review?

Why was my image not restricted?

There are times when we can’t restrict sharing of an image. For example, we may not restrict sharing of images that are newsworthy or documentary, have a strong public interest, contain unidentifiable subjects, are not actually photos, or if we can’t find the images in question. We will be sure to email you a brief explanation as to why your image was not restricted.
