If you are a very private person and want to maintain that privacy on the internet, here's a hack you may be interested in.

Don't be too concerned with how old the photo is. Google is can be outdated by several months, even over a year.

Now, in the lower-right part of your screen, there will be a horizontal menu, click Report A Problem.

A separate page now comes up with a red box bordering your house. With your mouse, adjust the red box so it surrounds your house.

The page will have items for you to check for blurring. Click "My home."

You will then be prompted to explain the reason for blurring. Simply state you are concerned about safety issues or privacy.

The final step is required. You must submit a valid email address then click Submit.

Once you have completed these steps Google will confirm by sending you an email.
