Request further blurring of a specific image
We provide easily accessible tools allowing users to request further blurring of any image that features the user, their family, their car or their home. In addition to the automatic blurring of faces and license plates, we will blur the entire car, house, or person when a user makes this request for additional blurring. Users can also request the removal of images that feature inappropriate content (for example: nudity or violence).

1. Locate the image in Street View.
2. Click "Report a problem" in the bottom-right of the image window.
3. Complete the form and click "Submit".

You and all homeonwers should be aware, when you choose to advertise your home for sale on the INTERNET (This is different than MLS and affiliates) you home CAN NEVER be fully removed. There are thousands of websites...Trulia is just one.
When your home went on the market your Listing Broker should have facilitated it being populated on Trulia. When the home sell or is withdrawn, it is that agent's responsibility to remove the listing from the site. Give him a call.
