Google’s Street View can be a helpful tool, but it is meant to help Google sell ads and make money, not protect your privacy.

Brian Cooper, Google Street View Continues to Raise Privacy Concerns

So how can you protect yourself? First, check your address using Street View. To report a concern with Street View imagery, enter the address you desire and click “Search Maps.” Then, click “Street View” in the thought bubble that appears on the map. Once the “Street View” image appears, click “Report a Concern” in the bottom left corner of the Street View image and enter the details of your complaint.
