Hi Dr Ashish,

It sounds like you are set up in the Google Contribute program. There is a setting in the contribute tab that gives users the notice when you are at or near a location that needs more information. If you go on the mobile maps app click on contribute. Then scroll down to the block that says uncover missing information. When you click on that the three buttons on the top right are available click on those and you can turn on or off the proximity alerts. I do not know the typical default settings so any one person that visits may or may not see the alert or even know what it is or how to do a review. You can send a link or ask customers to do a review. Here is how to send them a link to do reviews. 


Thanks for asking,
