Easy ways to hide posts in Google Local Guides

If we register as a local guide with Google, other users or the public can see all of the ratings we have given. However, it turns out that Google has provided profile settings that allow Local Guides to hide reviews they have submitted from other users or the public.

As a local guide, we should let the public see what ratings we have given. However, if privacy is important to you, you can easily hide any reviews you’ve left through the Local Guide profile settings. Do you remember how If not, please see the tutorial below.


1. Please open the Google Maps application on the Smartphone She.

2. When you have called up the start page of the Google Maps application, please tap on the three horizontal lines in the upper left corner.
