Dear all,


Can we disable the "Add a photo" button feature in our company profile & Google Map?

HI Jacky,

Unfortunately no. However, you can always report photos if you believe they are inappropriate or go against Google's guidelines.

This article explains more about how to do that here: https://support.google.com/business/answer/6130451

Dear Priya,

I just search some company such as Apple, there is no "Add a photo" button under their profile. Is there any reason about it?

Hi Jacky

This is not a local search result Knowledge panel - but a brand's knowledge graph. This information is drawn from a number of sources, including Wikipedia.

You are talking about the Local Search result Knowledge panel which is drawn from a business' Google+ listing.

Dear Priya,

Can we join any Google My Business service or other Google services to disable the "add photo" button? If yes, please advise.

It is because our colleagues get this information from their friends.

Thanks

Hi Jacky,

There are no 'services' that will allow you to disable the add photo button on a Local page.
