The aim is to provide reliable information about people publically in an easy way as these digital visiting cards will be visible at the top of search results – to make their identity easily searchable for others.
All you need is your mobile number and Google account to make the virtual card. One user can make only one card and the search engine will deploy human review with automated response to filter out impersonation or any such acts of the policy violation. Users can also opt-out at any time.
Meanwhile, the feature is available in English for mobile users but it will be expanded further in the coming days.
