If you get upset after seeing your personal information like phone number, home address etc., on a Google search, there is no need to panic. The company is bringing a new feature for Google Search, with the help of which you can request the removal of personal information. This feature allows you to delete your sensitive personal information such as contact details, login credentials, phone numbers etc. All you need to do is submit a request, and Google will evaluate it. If the request meets the company's criteria, it will be removed from Google Search.

Google has announced via a blog post that it will allow the removal of personally identifiable information from Google search results.
