Did you know you can request your home address be removed from online mapping services?
Well you can, and we recommend you do it for your own safety, especially if you are wearing the "sex offender" label.
Many online registries use these mapping services, and if you request yours be removed, then it will also be unmappable from the many registries as well.
Below is a link for Google Maps, but other mapping services have a similar process:
01) Enter your home address, then enter street view. Once you do, you will see a REPORT A PROBLEM link, click that.
02) You will then need to click the PRIVACY CONCERN link and follow the instructions.
