Thankfully, Google (GOOG, GOOGL) offers a means to scrub that content from its search engine for good. In the coming months, the company says it will release a tool to make it easier to remove your data. But for now, here’s how to get the tech giant to clear your personal private information from its massive search database.

Getting Google to remove your data from search

Since there’s no truly easy tool for getting your data off of Google, the first thing you’ll need to do is navigate to the company’s support website at support.google.com and type “Remove select personally identifiable info or doxxing content from Google Search” into the search box.

Click the “Read More” button under the box at the top of the screen that says “Remove select personally identifiable info or doxxing content from…”

Scroll down to the “Request to remove select info from Google Search” section and click the “Start removal request” button.

On the next page you’ll be met with a selection of multiple-choice choice questions. To begin the content removal process, you’ll have to choose “Remove information you see in Google Search” under the “What do you want to do section.”
