Updating our Street Level Image Privacy Blurring
No more unblurred copies
We are now announcing that we will no longer keep any unblurred copies of street level images that users submit to the Mapillary platform and we will continue to apply automatic privacy blurring when contributed images first arrive at our servers. This change reflects our continuing commitment to build a privacy enhancing platform that reflects the evolving values of the Mapillary community. Thank you to all of you who provided feedback across the forum and support channels.
No more unblurring in the editor
With this dedicated focus on privacy first, you will not be able to unblur any blurred areas in your contributions (blurring new areas manually works as normal though). We rarely see this feature used and decided to prioritize privacy over functionality in this case.
We appreciate your understanding and thanks for making Mapillary what it is today.
