I work at a highly confidential crisis center and need to remove our exact location from Google for safety purposes. Our address is not a public and our building has no signage in order to create a safe environment for our victims. Please help me maintain our anonymity. What do I need to do to resolve this concern?

 
Thank you.

@Samantha P

 

you should clarify please:

 

Is there already a listing for your center and its showing the address - so you wont to get this address hidden 

or are you going to to set up the listing but like to hide the address for any public

Hi Samantha,

Are you able to supply me with the URL to the GMB listing in concern?

If this is not possibly, then maybe the name of the business or phone number and i can look further into this for you.

Thanks,

Lyndsey

Hi Helmut.

 

I have the same sort of problem as Samantha.

 

I have not been able to verify my business and make edits that display publicly because I have not felt safe putting the exact address down.

 

Are you saying its possible to hide the address afterwards? I don't mind displaying the road name but I can't have the exact address down.

 

Is the only way to verify to put the exact address? If so perhaps I could put exact address, ask for verification postcard to be sent; and then hide the address after I'm verified?

you always have to specify the exact address (street address).

But in case you specify a service area since yo serve your customers at their location only the street address wil not and never displayed.

You appear on GMaps with the specified (red highlighted) service area only (and the name of the city or town of your adress).

Like for an example of a business I  managed for a friend of mine: https://goo.gl/maps/MYxVWghnCX92

Thanks!

So just so I'm clear, are you saying I add my exact address google sees it
but its not public to anyone else? Only the area is public (like suburb?)
