Remove Your Personal
Info From Google
Google has implemented a new feature
wherein you can type someone's telephone number into the
search bar and hit enter and then you will be given a
map to their house. Note that you can have your phone
number removed or blocked. Please look up your own
number. Read below for details. Think about it--if a
child, ANYONE gives out his/her phone number, someone
can actually now look it up to find out where he/she
lives. The safety issues are obvious, and alarming. In
order to test whether your phone number is mapped, go
Type your phone number in the search bar (i.e.
555-555-1212) and hit enter. If you want to BLOCK
Google from divulging your private information, simply
click on the telephone icon next to your phone number.
Removal takes 48-hours. If you are unlisted in the
phone book, you might not be in there, but it is a good
idea just to check. If your number does come up if you
hit map, it will show you a direct map to your house...
