More forget me requests

WebPredictably since the court ruling last week Google has received more requests from individuals wishing to be forgotten and not surprisingly it’s individuals with histories to hide including an ex-politician standing for re-election and a paedophile. If you didn’t spot that ruling, see my earlier post.

Google is reported to be working on an automatic tool to handle such requests.

This is a poor step forward for data protection, don’t you agree?
