About this image
The new tool from Google is called About this Image. It provides users with important context like when an image or similar images were first indexed by Google, where it may have first appeared, and where else it’s been seen online like a news, social or fact-checking site, said Google in a blog post.
Google had given a feature to Gmail users where they were allowed to run a scan to see if their account was used on the dark web. The feature was available only to Google One subscribers in the US. Google will soon be expanding access to its dark web report to select international markets in the US.

In a blog post, Google said, “you will be informed in permission requests when an app shares your information with 3rd parties for advertising purposes. Users will have the option to decide if they want to approve or decline location sharing for each app and thus giving them more control.
