Google Alerts

Email alerts sent to you to monitor anything on the Web



The general Google Terms of Service apply to this app.


  • Google Alerts are emails sent to you when Google finds a new result that matches your search term; e.g., Web page, newspaper article, blog.
  • You can use Google Alerts to monitor anything on the Web.
  • Google Alerts differ from Google News in that the results of your alerts are sent to you as email. With Google News, the results are aggregated and displayed for you within the app.

Alerts is primarily a personal app, so there is no limitation in how to use it in terms of accessibility.
