Blur the Casa Google!

houselurIn an effort to further protect privacy and maybe avoid litigation,  the good folks at Google have announced that users have the option of requesting blurring of their Home which may appear on the Google Street Views. An Algorithm is in effect which can automatically  blur faces and licence places and if the blurbots at Google Maps miss your mug, you can request Google Maps to Blur you.

The Same can now be done with property such as Homes, RV’s. Planes, Boats etc. The sad thing about this, if you wanted to look at a childhood home on Google StreetView, former place of work or even the Exes house to see who they are dating now – this might be impossible if the owner of the home request the Blur!
