Google offers a very powerful search engine where all the websites and content revolve around it. In addition, it has a tool used by the vast majority: image search. There we can find any type of image, and if we do not apply specific filters, we can take a bad drink.

Problems can arise if, for example, we find images of minors, something that Google has already remedied. And it is that recently has published a platform to eliminate from its searches those images that involve people under 18 years of age. In this article we explain how to access it and complete the removal process.

25 codes, functions and tricks to search on Google making the most of your search engine

All those who seek to remove an image of a minor should go to this web page that Google has provided. In her we can find everything we need to complete the procedure. For this, the minor himself, his parents or legal guardian are in charge of having to carry out this process. From Google they specify that if the image is of public or journalistic interest, the image could continue to remain in their searches.

Requirements for image deletion

From the website provided by Google, they specify a series of requirements to complete the process:

  • The indicated URL must be a direct address to the image.
  • The image must include an identifiable individual who is under 18 years of age.
  • The individual taking the action must be the minor, their parents or legal guardian.

Step by step procedure

Google delete image

On the website provided, click on the option to ‘Start removal request’. Already in the form to contact Google, a series of options appear that we can modify. Here we are asked if we have contacted the website that published the image before, and we have three possible answers. We select the one that best suits us:

Google

  • No. How do I do it?
  • No, I prefer not to
  • Yes

Once answered, we select the information we want to delete. We have options such as personal information, items that contain explicit nudity, content about us, content that must be removed for legal reasons, or images of individuals under 18 years of age. For this case, we select the last option.

Delete Google Image

Then they ask us if the image in question contains explicit elements or not. We select according to the type of image we think it is:

Explicit Content

After having specified the image that we want to delete, it opens a form that we will have to complete with the following information in order:

Form 1

  • Full name of the minor.
  • Name of the person who is filling in the form, if applicable.
  • Relationship with the minor of the person who is filling in the form, if applicable.
  • Age of the minor.
  • Country of residence.
  • Contact email.
  • URL of the image in question.
  • URL of the Google results where the image appears.
  • A list of the words that were necessary to find the image in the results.
  • Description of why we want to delete it.

{“videoId”: “x7znigx”, “autoplay”: true, “title”: “13 GOOGLE CHROME TRICKS you probably didn’t know about”}

Form 2

Once we have filled out the form, we give our consent and click on ‘Submit’.

Form 3

Google will send us an automatic email confirming the process. After this, they will be in charge of reviewing the request, they will investigate if necessary and we will receive a notification if actions have been taken through the e-mail itself.
