The internet is a worldwide network, where it connects everything in the world together, so we can find everything we need through the web. Compared to the past; we might need to look for the help of books, journals, newspapers or other material to check out the information that we want. It takes a long time and is a complicated process to search for the information we need. We were unable to reach global sources and we were limited to local information only. 

There’s practically no limit to the content you can find on the internet— and that can pose a significant issue sometimes. With just a simple click, you are able to find all the content that you want with the keywords you are searching. 

With just a simple search through the internet, your family, friends and any other people can find all sorts of information about you, including your personal and work experience, and more disturbingly, any less-than-flattering photos that may appear around the internet.

The internet provides helpful information for us, but it also poses a threat to us, where it becomes less private, all personal information becomes transparent to the others, people can now easily find someone’s personal information through the world wide web.

The internet and social media platform offer opportunities for people to connect to others, to expand their network virtually online. People are able to share their opinion, their ideas, their insights, their thoughts and experience to the world. Most people would like to share their daily life events with their social network sites, such as photos and videos.

The social media platform has acted as a new external storage place for us; no differently to online cloud storage, which is a new storage place for many people. They would upload their photos there where it is convenient; so that they can access the picture at any time, and anywhere they want. It may also allow others to access it more efficiently, which results in the increasing number of cyber-crime cases, leakage of personal information, photos and videos. 

Such photos or videos that are stored online typically leave a footprint on the internet. This data is recorded everywhere, such as what we have done online, what we are searching, what we created and uploaded, and it will typically be stored forever. From time to time, you must have some content that we wish to be removed, especially removing photos that makes you feel embarrassed.

The photo may be sexually explicit photographs or video taken by a member in an intimate relationship with the permission and consent of the subject or may be taken without his or her permission. Such photo may destroy a person image and may lead to suicide cases after all.

3 Effective Steps on How to Remove Your Images from Google

1. Find the original sources of the image you want to delete

If you find out that you have some photo showing up in the search engine, such as Google and you wish to remove it, you may need to find the sources of such a photo, the original website that contains the photo. Google is a search engine, which means that it only shows images and information from other websites. It will not be the source website; however, you may be able to find the source from Google.

Search the keyword through Google, it can be your name or other related keywords, and you can find the source by clicking to the image showing in the result page. You will be directed to the web page that contains the image you wish to delete

You may contact the webmaster or the site owner to take the image down, once the image is taken down, the image or photo will not be showing on the Google search result. 

2. Ask Nicely

If you want to remove the image in other people’s websites or social media sites, you should ask politely and nicely, which is to request them to help you to take down the photo. Much of the information or pictures that many of us found unflattering online are on social networks because we have shared them voluntarily. If you’ve made a comment or posted an article on someone else’s website, you’re likely to lose your rights to that post as soon as you click publish it.

So you should consider carefully before you want to post something online or to the social platform, where it will be troublesome when you request to take down those content. Because if you’re going to remove those images, you may have to talk to the individual webmasters with some convincing and robust reason for why they should grant your request to take it down. Ask politely to them, so they may help you to remove it. 

3. Keep Trying

Requesting someone to remove the image of you from the website will take a long time to get responses, and may not get any response. There are very few projects that can challenge your endurance in the face of so many refusals and non-responses that you will seek to take down an unflattering image or online video. You need to keep talking and keep emailing webmasters if you want to see improvement.
