Cyber security news for all


    Millions of profiles have been removed to keep the content on Google Maps trustworthy

    Google Maps receives millions of user entries every day, more than seven billion a year. However, the company also deletes fake articles. Most are discovered by automated detectors and do not even appear to other users.

    More Functions For Google Maps

    The vast majority of posts posted on Google Maps are authentic. Less than one percent of the content does not meet the guidelines. Nevertheless, Google will continue to work on new and better techniques to combat harmful cyber actors.

    The card service has just turned 15 years old. For the anniversary, Google donated new functions and a new look. Since then, the app has shown five tabs for both Android and iOS devices to make finding suitable information easier. In addition to the pure street overview, the service now offers numerous functions – from route planning with live data from traffic to restaurant ratings to opening times and even particularly hip places and trends

    Millions of fake ratings and fake profiles were removed using optimized machine learning mechanisms. These had violated the Maps guidelines. In addition, reviews and profiles were taken from the platform, which had been reported directly to Google. The significantly larger number of distances show that machine learning at Google seems to be bearing.

    Furthermore, photos and videos that violated the guidelines were removed, while  user accounts were deactivated. Cyber experts emphasize that content violates the guidelines and appears less than one percent of the time of use.

    Google Does Not Want To Forego User Contributions In The Future Either

    Only with this amount of user-generated content could the app become so extensive and helpful. Nevertheless, tools and techniques continue to be developed to minimize fake content and to exclude users who distribute it.
