What is AdChoices label on Adsense ?

Google “AdChoices” is the replacement label to the “i” in-ads icon that expands to an “Ads by Google” label in the bottom corner of the Google AdWords ads.

This change from “i” icon and “Ads by Google” label to these new notifications is an effort by Google to comply online advertising industry’s Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising to more proactively give users notice and choice about the ads they see. ” Google explained:

With the change from our “i” icon and “Ads by Google” label to these new notifications, we hope to show our support for this cross-industry initiative, and to increase our users’ understanding about ad choices through adoption of an icon they’ll see on ads across the web.
