If I view a place either by zooming in and clicking on it or searching for this place, it starts to show on the map constantly, even when the map is zoomed in a lot less than how close it would have to be zoomed for this place to appear if I haven’t viewed it in the past.

This is sort of annoying and even a little bit privacy invading, since other people may be looking behind my shoulder, so they know what places I have viewed with Google Maps.

Signed in, a label for Starbucks is displayed:


Not signed in, the label is not displayed


Anyway, can I disable the feature and/or remove all of these labels?
