How To: Opt Out Of Google’s Endorsements That Use Your Name And Face

Google ProfilesGoogle recently updated their TOS and you may have seen an email from them and a blue notification bar on Google.com or elsewhere informing you of this. What many people don’t know is that this change will allow your name and face to appear next to Google search results.

Follow these simple steps to ensure they can’t use your details, simply click here and log into your Google account if required. Then search down for a check box like in the picture below, and uncheck the box if it is checked. Thats it, nothing complicated or difficult, our check box was unchecked by default but it may not be for you and personally I will be checking back over the next few weeks to be sure it stays unchecked.
