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. Everyone should be aware of this!

Note that you can have your phone number removed or blocked.



Quite scary. 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

to: http://www.google.com/



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 your name, the

telephone icon or the "Phone results" link 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... Please forward on to friends and

family!!!

Hi Fireball,

I tried this and got no results. Does this mean my phone number is not mapped?

If you type it like the example is shown and then comes up blank it is correct.

I thought it was a joke it's not Googling my home PHONE number produced my name and address.
It let's you opt out, which of course I did.
