Interesting but dangerous feature.....
Hello, Take a look at the note below - if you go to www.google.com
type in your telephone number it will actually pull up directions to
house - there is a way to have your number removed. Many people are
unaware of this danger. I was, in fact! Go to www.google.com then
your phone number (separated by hyphens, including area code) and
Google Search. If your phone number is listed it will show your name
address and give you two map options. Yahoo and MapQuest. See how
the map is to your home. VERY SCARY!!!
Any person wishing to discover the physical location of a phone
it a home or business address,could use this feature to locate a
street address, and receive directions on how to get there from
the country. In the age of
the internet communication we all know the dangers of this - for
Google has made available an option that will allow anyone to REMOVE
telephone number from the database that is linked to the mapping
You will first need to check if your number is listed in this manner
attempting a search-entering your full telephone number separated by
(e.g. 555-555-5555). If the number appears in the mapping database,
resembling a telephone will appear next to the first or second entry
results page. Clicking on this icon will take you to a page
description of the service, and a link to
request your number be removed from the database. So far unlisted
and cell phone numbers, do not show up. Happy searching! Be safe!
