Letters To The Editor

Thank you for this information (How To Hide Your House From Google Maps). I immediately Googled our home and found that not only were our automobiles pictured (tags WERE blurred) but my 7 year old daughter and I were in the photo. I am NOT happy about the privacy of my daughter being invaded. We were about to get in the car which was parked in the driveway. I remember the Google car driving by with music so loud my daughter stopped and rolled her eyes at it. I did not even consider we may also be pictured!!! I am livid. I hope only by posting this that people are made aware that car plates may not get blurred at times but also children are not blurred. That is a huge privacy concern.


Thanks, Hillary, for letting us know that. We have had quite a few readers express similar frustration.

    We are a marketing, communications and public relations agency that works with companies and issues in sustainable food and agriculture, and all things LOHAS-related (Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability). I am, in fact, the founder of the LOHAS Conference, and also currently serve on the campaign finance committee for the Washington State I-522 bill to label GMO foods. In working with clients and issues in natural and organic food, renewable energy, alternative transportation and sustainability, we often share news and announcements that will be of interest to Off the Grid News. Could you please provide an email address to which we can share news releases? Thank you very much for your consideration.
