A new Google update will make it easier to control information appearing in search results. Last year, the company released a tool to help people remove phone numbers, home and email addresses. The latest update will add further features to the “results about you” tool to make it even more effective.

A new dashboard will appear over the next few days, letting users know when personal information pops up in search results. When alerted, you’ll be able to ask Google to remove the offending results.

Earlier this year, the company debuted a new feature for Google One users that crawls the dark web to see if information has been included in data breaches. The latest update seems to work similarly for the wider internet, further protecting your privacy.

The tool can be accessed in the Google app by tapping your profile photo and choosing “results about you” or from a dedicated webpage if you’re using a PC or laptop. The new feature is only available in the US for now, but Google plans to roll out the update to a wider audience very soon.

Meanwhile, Google is also implementing an upgrade that will allow people to not only remove non-consensual explicit images from search results, but also consensual photos that they no longer want to be seen.

Finally, Google is also updating its parental controls and SafeSearch. Explicit imagery will be blurred by default, and it will soon become much easier to access parental controls.

A Dubai-based company has completed the initial trials for the UAE’s first driverless trucks. The groundbreaking achievement by Evocargo, partnering with Dubai South, took place at Dubai South Logistics District, and marked a significant step towards incorporating autonomous technologies into the region’s wider logistics infrastructure.

Announced on Wednesday, July 17th, the trials featured the Evocargo N1 unmanned electric truck navigating a predetermined route within a controlled setting. The test involved interactions with common road obstacles such as cars, trucks, and pedestrians, aiming to evaluate the vehicle’s hardware and software reliability, accident prevention systems, and overall readiness for public road use.

Officials were keen to highlight that this accomplishment aligns with the UAE’s ambitious strategy to position itself as a global leader in innovation and technology adoption. The country aims to have 25% of all transportation in Dubai autonomous by 2030, underscoring its commitment to revolutionizing the logistics sector using advanced technologies.

Mohsen Ahmad, CEO of the Logistics District at Dubai South, emphasized the importance of the collaboration with Evocargo in enhancing the region’s logistics capabilities. He noted that autonomous vehicles are set to increase efficiency, reduce carbon emissions, and establish a sustainable logistics infrastructure that will benefit both Dubai and the wider UAE.
