    If you go to www.google.com and type in your HOME telephone number with hyphens it will actually pull up directions to your house. There is a way to have your number removed. Many people are unaware of this danger. Go to www.google.com then type in your phone number (separated by hyphens, including area code) and click on Google Search. If your phone number is listed it will show your name and address and give you two map options. Yahoo and MapQuest. See how accurate the map is to your home. VERY SCARY!!! Any person wishing to discover the physical location of a phone number, be it a home or business address, could use this feature to locate a physical street address, and receive directions on how to get there from anywhere in the country. In the age of the internet communication we all
    know the dangers of this - for adults and CHILDREN!

    Google has made available an option that will allow anyone to REMOVE their telephone number from the database that is linked to the mapping feature. You will first need to check if your number is listed in this manner by attempting a search-entering your full telephone number separated by dashes (e.g. 555-555-5555). If the number appears in the mapping database, an icon resembling a telephone will appear next to the first or second entry on the results page. Clicking on this icon will take you to a page containing a description of the service, and a link to request your number be removed from the database. So far unlisted numbers and cell phone numbers, do not show up.

    Wow! This is scary.

    Good find Ernie. Any idea if the number can be removed from the others listed?

    Thanks Ernie,

    I was lucky. The telephone listing does not contain my street address. So the only thing that popped up was my name and town. But that's two more things than I want. So I filled out the form to delete my info.

    Best wishes, Lily

    This is a good example of why I feel an unpublished, unlisted number is worth the extra expense.
