Google is taking giving users an option to remove "revenge porn" from search results.

Google has announced that it is taking a stance against revenge porn in its search results. The search giant is implementing a way for victims to request that explicit images shared without their consent be removed from search results.

From Google:

Our philosophy has always been that Search should reflect the whole web. But revenge porn images are intensely personal and emotionally damaging, and serve only to degrade the victims—predominantly women. So going forward, we'll honor requests from people to remove nude or sexually explicit images shared without their consent from Google Search results. This is a narrow and limited policy, similar to how we treat removal requests for other highly sensitive personal information, such as bank account numbers and signatures, that may surface in our search results.

As Google notes, while this is a significant step forward in addressing the ease of access to revenge porn, it's still a relatively limited policy that requires action on the part of the victim and only affects Google search results.
