Google.com has implemented a new feature by which you can type someone's telephone number into its search bar, hit enter, and then see the person's telephone number and address - along with a map to the person's house!

Everyone should be aware of this! When I entered our telephone
number,the telephone number, street address, and a map of where we lived came back in seconds. If a child, ANYONE, gives out his or her telephone number, someone can actually look it up on the Google site to find out where the person lives. The safety issues are obviously alarming.

To test whether your telephone number pull up this information on the
Google site, first go to www.google.com. In the rectangular search bar,
type in your full ten-digit telephone number - and hit enter. If your
telephone number is in Google's system, you will see on the next screen
under the heading "Phone Book Results" your telephone number, your
name, your address, and two map directory prompts (one is "Yahoo! Maps" and the other is "MapQuest"). All you then need to do is click on either of the two map directory sites and a layout of your where you live will appear.

You can have this information removed or blocked. When the above screen displays, click on your telephone number. The page that next appears will
show the same information, below which you will see the notation "If you
would like to have your Phone Book list removed, you can do so by using our Phone Book Removal Form." Click on the Phone Book Removal Form prompt and a form will be displayed. Fill out the form as indicated.

Removal takes 48 hours.

Quite scary.

Thats a nice feature for some stalker or pedophile. If they get the phone number they can pop it in google and there is a map to the house. A free map to go victimize. :evil:

Holy Crap.....I got this big yellow book sent to my house and it has not only my name and address, but others in my town. I called my mom when this happened and she too got one with my dad's name, number and address along with the people in their town. I think it has begun, we have all been labeled.

That's why I pay the $2 a month to be unlisted.

That's why I pay $34.95 a month for Optimum Voice...all numbers are unlisted and unpublished!
That why I pay $5.00 for a roll of aluminum foil to cover my walls and ceiling. To keep them out. :shock:

You too! I found that using the shiny side out works best.

Wow, you're getting ripped off on the cost for the aluminum foil! And I thought CT was expensive!

yeah what Gil said... even if you take your name of Google, there is a little blurb with about 6 other websites that have the same info on it and on some of them you can't take the info off...

FYI that's not a "new" feature, that's a feature that has existed since day one.
Shocking that you can also go to people.yahoo.com and look up phone numbers and addresses, whitepages.com, infospace.com, whitepages.com and a whole host of others.


It's almost like reading a phone book! Jeebus!

And oh yeah, you are a bunch of bitter, angry people. :no:
