Google Wants to Prevent Assisted Suicide for Their Searches

The New York Times reported yesterday that since last week Google has taken a different attitude to realize that certain search apparently aims suicide. In these situations, now the search engine displays before any result, the number of Line National Prevention to the American Suicide, next to a red phone that also gives more prominence to the alert.

It is the second time Google adds results of such a search. The first was with an emergency phone to poisoning when the search indicated that it was a case of the kind. Now, when a user does a search for terms like “suicide” or “suicidal thoughts” line appears telephone assistance. Apparently the novelty appears only to Google users located in the United States.
