Google has just made searching on the internet a lot easier. The company recently added a new “Personal” tab to its search result, showing you your personal data stored on your Google account.
The new tab was first reported by Search Engine Roundtable. It works similar to the other tabs such as Images, Maps and News however, instead of pulling information from across the web, it goes through your personal accounts such as Gmail and Google Photos.
The new Personal tab isn’t shown by default. To access it, perform a search on Google.com, tap on “More”, and select “Personal”. Google will show you information from other Google products like your events in Google Calendar, reservations, flights, and more. As expected, all the information shown under “Personal” can only be seen by you unless of course, you choose to share them.
This is not a completely new feature of course. Before this, Google already could already show you your personal information in its search results. With this new Personal tab, it just organises everything in a single tab, making it easier for you to find all the relevant information you need. You may opt out of it under the Search Settings page of your Google account; just tell Google if it should include your Private results or not.
