My business only provides service to the customers at their location. I checked that box on google my business for that option and i put in the areas that i provide business too. I also left the box unchecked that says i also provide my service to people at my address. But my business address still continues to pop up on google maps. And i made my business profile probably a year ago and its still continues to do it. What do i need to do to keep my address from showing on google maps? Or is it suppose to do that?

It looks like it's set correctly to me at least. Looking at your profile it publicly says that your address is Stony Point, NC 28678 (no house number or street name). If you click down below, it shows your map location like this. Notice how there's no pin anywhere, it's just a big red outline of your service area. That means you've set it up correctly. 

Where is it exactly you're seeing your full address being listed still? There are still ways for people to visibly see your address, but they're pretty hidden, and not widely known. Your actual hidden address also matters too, since you'll show in a Google search with more frequency for people who are closer to your physical location, but for all intents and purposes your address is hidden properly.

Ok thank you. I think I confused my self. When I was editing my buisness info and I was under address it kept showing the red pointer on the location of the business. So I automatically thought it was showing the physical address on google.
