Google Streetview – How to blur your home and car from Streetview

06/03/2015

Google streetview is used by burglars, tax inspectors and nosy neighbours, so lets start by blurring the images available on streetview.

**Update – Google blurred my home (front and back garden) within 48 hours.  So far, they have not blurred my car**

Step 1 – Find your home/car on Streetview.

Below you will find directions on how to blur your home on street view. It only takes 30 seconds to do.

Google Maps

  • Visit Google.com/maps and enter your home post code.
  • Look to the lower-right of the screen. You should see a little icon that looks like a yellow person in the tool bar.
  • Click on that icon and drag it over to your address location on the map to access Street View.
  • The map should be replaced by a picture of your home or business. If you don’t see your home, then move up and down the street or rotate the picture until you do. (If it still doesn’t work, then Google may not have an image of your home.)
  • Click on “report a problem” on the bottom-right.

  • Follow the directions, and fill out the form.  Categories include my home, my car and a different object, which may include your garage or back garden.

That’s it!

You might want to blur the back view of your home, as well as your car.

It’ll be interesting to see how long Google take to do this – so I’ll edit this post once they have.
