Google Privacy Concerns for 'Google Street View'

Google Privacy Concerns

Ever since the Google Street View program was released in May 2007, many people have been complaining about the privacy issues associated with it. Apart from seeing their houses on Google's Web site, people have reported seeing themselves on the Internet as well. Now, I'd say that's taking it a bit too far. If you agree, here's how you can keep your home and yourself a little more private!

1.) If you don't want your house to show up in the Google Street View program because of privacy issues, all you have to do is click on the Report a Concern button, shown below.

2.) Next, choose Privacy Concerns for the reason why you don't want the image shown in Street View.

3.) Now, describe why you don't want the image in Street View and then enter in your e-mail address.

4.) Next, move the Street View image until the red rectangle is centered over your property.

That's it! Google will then review your concerns and delete the image if they agree with you. Yes!
