Default google reverse phone look up... email i got... i works too.

Google has implemented a new feature which enables you to type a telephone number into the search bar and hit enter and you will be given the person'* name and address. If you then hit MapQuest, you will get a map to the person'* house Everyone should be aware of this! It'* a nationwide reverse telephone book.

If a child gives out his/her phone number, someone can now look it up to find out where he/she lives. The safety issues are obvious, and alarming.

Note that you can have your phone number removed or blocked. I tried my number and it came up along with the mapquest and directions straight to our house. I did fill out the removal form for myself, and encourage all of you to do the same. Quite scary.

Please look up your own number.

In order to test whether your phone number is mapped, go to: google Type your phone number in the search bar (i.e. 555-555-1212) and hit enter. If you want to BLOCK Google from divulging your private information, simply click on your telephone number and then click on the Removal Form. Removal takes 48-hours.

Check your own number and although this may not apply to you if you have an unlisted number or cell phone as primary contact, but you may know someone who needs to know this.

Please share this information with friends and family

Yeah, This has been around for years, and even if you block google from making the link they just have to c&p the info from superpages.com.


Off-Topic.... They finally updated the maps of my area, That was a bad 8 years waiting for that....
