Google will remove revenge porn from search results

Revenge porn, or sexually explicit media released without the subject's consent, will no longer show up in Google search results, the tech giant announced Friday.

"In the coming weeks," Google will post a form where victims can request revenge porn results removed. Of course, Google cannot remove the images from the internet itself.

"Revenge porn images are intensely personal and emotionally damaging, and serve only to degrade the victims — predominantly women," the announcement read.
