telephone number into the search bar and hit enter and you will be given
the person's name and address. If you then hit MapQuest, you will get a
mapto the person's house. Everyone should be aware of this! ?It's a
nationwidereverse telephone book.
**** If a child (or an adult) gives out his/her phone number, someone
Cannow look it up to find out where he/she lives. The safety issues are
obvious, and alarming.
Note that you can have your phone number removed or blocked. I tried
Mynumber and it came up along with the mapquest and directions straight
Toour house. I did fill out the removal form for myself, and encourage all
Ofyou to do the same. Quite scary.
Please look up your own number.
In order to test whether your phone number is mapped, go to: google (
http://www.google.com/) Type your phone ?number in the search bar (i.e.
555-555-1212) and hit enter. If you want to BLOCK Google from divulging
your private information, simply click on your telephone ?number and
thenclick on the Removal Form. Removal takes 48-hours.
