Right To Be Forgotten To Expand Over All Google Domains

By 05:32 Sat, 31 Jul 2021 Comments

Google offers the ‘correct to be forgotten’ option for all EU citizens, by EU regulations. If a person asks Google to rego all information about him, Google is obliged to rego any references and information from its search engine.

As this rule applies to EU citizens and for the EU only, Google scrubs such information only from its .fr, .co.uk, .bg, .de, and similar EU Google Search domains. This allowed for an easy workaround - just open Google.com or any other non-EU Google Search website and repeat the search string.

This is about to change in just a few days, though. Google is going to address this workaround, and the ‘correct to be forgotten’ rule will apply to all Google domains when used within the EU (detected by Internet Protocol (IP) address). Soon, the only way to see results under the ‘correct to be forgotten’ rule will require you to be out of the EU or utilize a proxy server.

According to BBC, Google will apply the recent rules in mid-February and if some information is under the ‘correct to be forgotten’ rule it won’t be accessed by any Google Search engine invoked within the EU borders.
