    For the time being, this feature is launched only in India, and Google is not looking to expand this feature.

    The card shows details like name, profession, location, and much more. It also offers multiple cards if cards are created with the same name to help users distinguish between unique individuals and find what they are looking for. To make cards more descriptive, users can add images from their Google account and link their social media profiles with details they want to showcase, like phone numbers and email addresses. 

    In order to use this feature, you need the latest version of the Google app. Here are the steps to create people cards on Google search.

    1. Open the Google app on your smartphone and log in to your Google account.

    2. Now type in the search bar ‘add me to search’ and tap on the ‘Get started’ button on the first card that says add yourself to Google search.

    4. On the next page, you can enter details such as name, occupation location about work details, educational details, and other important information you want to add to the card

    Create your public profile

    5.Once you have filled in all the information, you can tap on the preview button and submit the card.

    To ensure specific security parameters, Google has made it limited to create one people card for one Google account. It ensures that helpful and reliable information is kept secure and the quality of data on the card is reliable.

    To authenticate users on people cards, a unique mobile number is needed. For every new card, users will require a unique phone number. The people card feature utilizes Google’s knowledge graph and displays relevant information to the users.

    You need to have a pre-existing Google account in order to create your own unique people card on Google search. To reduce the number of fake people cards and impersonators, you will need to have a unique phone number for each people card you create.

    Google has also made it possible for the users to have complete control over the information they want to be included on the card, and they can also opt-out of the experience anytime and their people cards will disappear from the search. Users can also report low-quality information or a card that an impersonator has created using the feedback button. 

    The information on the cards is aimed at helping users distinguish from people sharing the same name. For those looking to find someone on search, these cards make it easy and quick to find the right person using the essential details mentioned on the card. 

    As per Google guidelines, if the company finds the content potentially violating their terms and conditions, they can ask the user to change it. Through the message on the personal card, the user can change the content or appeal to the decision.
