We get a few emails every week from people asking how they can get their image removed from Google Street View, so we thought we’d discuss it here. Thankfully, it’s a fairly simple process.
As you likely know, Google automatically blurs any faces or license plate numbers that appear in the imagery, as seen here:
However, sometimes a face will be missed or you’ll have some other reason to request that an image be removed. The steps are as follows:
- Locate the image in Street View.
- Click “Report a problem” in the bottom-right of the image window.
- Complete the form and click “Submit”.
That’s it! They’ll review your report and take appropriate action. You can use a similar technique in Google Maps to help update the map if you see any incorrect information (misspelled street names, etc).
