As an administrator of your organization's Google Accounts you can control who uses Google My Maps. Just turn the service on or off for those users in your Admin console. Users who have My Maps turned on can use it to create and share custom maps from their account.
Control who uses My Maps in your organization
Before you begin: To turn a service on or off for certain users, put their accounts in an organizational unit (to control access by department) or add them to an access group (to allow access for users across or within departments).
From the Admin console Home page, go to AppsAdditional Google services.
Click Google My Maps.
Tip: Scroll to see all services. Or at the left, choose a Filter to narrow the list, for example, based on status or popularity.
- Click Service status.
To turn on or off a service for everyone in your organization, click On for everyone or Off for everyone, and then click Save.
(Optional) To turn a service on or off for an organizational unit:
- At the left, select the organizational unit.
- Select On or Off.
- Click Override to keep your setting if the service for the parent organizational unit is changed.
- If Overridden is already set for the organizational unit, choose an option:
- Inherit—Reverts to the same setting as its parent.
- Save—Saves your new setting (even if the parent setting changes).

To turn on a service for a set of users across or within organizational units, select an access group. For details, go to turn on a service for a group.
Note: When My Maps is turned off, maps in public sites don't appear. To load maps, log out before you access the site, or use Incognito mode (without logging into Google Workspace).
