google this

Did you know that you can go to google.com and type in your telephone number, and that if it’s not unlisted, your address and a map-it link will pop up?

It’s true. I don’t like that a bit. But, I have an unlisted number. Do you? Consider the ramifications: Your child could give someone their number, and they can mapquest directions to your house from it. Yeah, I’m not liking that at all.

I know that a person can also go to whitepages.com and get reverse-look up addresses. But, at least with google’s version, you can block access to it. Just click on your phone number, and fill out the form that will block access. It supposedly takes about 48hours to take effect.
