I just use the service recently, and notice that there seems to be no people in the images of street view. Are Google do something to filter people out? (maybe because I have not used it much, or it's that their privacy policy? )

  • @phunehehe: I read the policy, it means they still can capture blurring image of people, right? But I can't find any people in their images. Dec 14 '10 at 7:07
  • after rechecking, I saw 1 person. It seems they choose where & when to take pictures very carefully. Dec 14 '10 at 7:09
  • You should have commented on my answer, so that I get notified when you do. Anyway that's true, they have to show respect to privacy.

  • Sorry, but I just don't have that priviledge yet. Dec 14 '10 at 9:41

Yes that's a privacy issue, read more from Google's policy.


There are plenty of people in Street View images, however Google will honor requests to blur and/or remove images.
