How can it be that Apple is now allowed to show all buildings without pixels? And why is nobody getting as upset about it as they did back then on Google Street View?
Google was a pioneer with the technology back then. In Germany in particular, where the Internet is still sometimes referred to as “new territory”, the fear was great.
Twelve years later, the situation is completely different and the outrage is contained. As the Bavarian State Office for Data Protection Supervision informed Der Spiegel, only 15 to 20 applications have been received since April, most of which people wanted to be completely pixelated – by default, only faces and license plates are made unrecognizable.
But you can also object to the presentation of your house on Look Around and have it pixelated. This can be done by sending an email to [email protected].
