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.
