Google Maps: Users left shocked by man pulling rude gesture on Street View

Due to Google’s privacy rules, the man’s face is blurred out as is his middle finger.

However his middle finger can be made out and is clearly extended into the air.

Google takes its privacy very seriously and can blur out faces, number plates as well as house numbers to keep the public protected.

One instance that left Google Maps users stunned was a scene that took place in Maidenhead, UK.

Also the front garden and driveway are still visible which isn’t usually the case if a house becomes blurred.

When Google wants to protect the privacy of people, it can blur out features like faces, number plates as well as house numbers.

But residents can also submit a request for their home to be blurred and do not need a reason to do so.

Google Maps website states: “Google takes a number of steps to protect the privacy of individuals when Street View Imagery is published to Google Maps.

“If you see that your face or license plate requires additional blurring, or if you would like us to blur your entire house, car, or body, submit a request using the “Report a problem” tool.”
