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:

  1. Locate the image in Street View.
  2. Click “Report a problem” in the bottom-right of the image window.
  3. 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).

For more, check out the privacy section on the Google Street View website.
