According to Reuters, only a small percentage of Germans have so far opted out of Google Street View after the US company doubled the period in which people could request to have their homes or apartments blurred.
Andreas Tuerk, Street View product manager in Germany said that Google was about to release Street View images of 20 large German cities.
Google said that out of the 8,458,084 households in those cities it had only 244,237 requests to opt out, or 2.89 per cent of the households involved.
The opt out option has been around since April 2009. Every tenant and house owner has had the option to request in writing that their building would not be recognizable on Google Street View.
To make it easier, Google added an online tool for users to transmit their requests.
Tuerk warned that in some cases it has been difficult to blur or delete references because the specifications were not legible or the descriptions of buildings were not precise enough.
It seems that despite all the publicity and wringing of hands, most Germans are not all that worried about Google's Street View after all
