Google Maps Tips: How to blur your house or car visible on Google Maps? Know the complete method here..


Google keeps introducing many features for its customers. One of these features is Google Maps, with the help of which you can easily navigate to any location. Along with this, the Street View feature is also available in Google Maps, which is an interactive tool. With its help, users have been able to explore nearby areas and find shops, routes, and locations.


This feature is not widely available in India at the moment, but it gives a completely 360-degree view of the surroundings or a particular location. In addition to the immersive view, Street View on Maps also shows nearby shops, buildings, parked cars, and street names, giving a realistic representation of the physical environment. But this information is very sensitive.

To reduce this risk, Google has implemented dedicated rules and regulations to ensure your privacy and security.
