Remove information from Google

If you want to remove a photo, link to a profile, or webpage from Google Search results, you usually need to contact the website owner (webmaster) and ask them to remove the information.

If you need to remove sensitive personal information (like your bank account number or an image of your handwritten signature) from search results, use this page to request that we remove the information. See our Removals Policies to learn more about what information Google will remove.

Why contact the webmaster?

Even if Google deletes the site or image from our search results, the webpage still exists and can be found through the URL to the site, social media sharing, or other search engines. This is why your best option is to contact the webmaster who can remove the page entirely.

If a photo or information shows up in Google search results, it just means that the information exists on the Internet and it doesn’t mean that Google endorses it.
