The reported home of Germanwings co-pilot Andreas Lubitz has been blurred out on Google Maps

Prosecutors say Andreas Lubitz deliberately crashed Germanwings flight A320 last week

Google blurs all faces and license plates in its Street View images.
It’s website states people can request further blurring of a specific image, including: “We will blur the entire car, house, or person when a user makes this request for additional blurring.

Vocative writes: “Germans, however, have a contentious history with the search giant over privacy.

At the time about 250,000 Germans took Google up on the other.”
