Requesting Maps Privacy

Killian Bell:

It’s not uncommon to see certain things blurred out inside Apple Maps and Google Maps. Both services regularly conceal things like faces and license plates. However, it is rare to see entire buildings hidden behind big, blurry walls.

But that’s all you get when you visit Cook’s house in Palo Alto, California, today.


If you would prefer for your home to be censored inside Apple Maps and Google Maps, all you have to do is file a request. Apple has a webpage that explains the process, while Google takes requests inside Google Maps.


Update (2024-03-29): Cabel Sasser:

I had no idea that when you ask Apple Maps not to include your house in Look Around, they convert your house into Minecraft.
