Understand reinstatement requestsResponse times
We review, investigate, and clear up most requests within 2 weeks.
If we remove:
- The public can’t go to the profile.
- The owner and managers can't act on the profile.
- The owner and managers can ask us to reinstate the profile. We reinstate both the profile and its owner and managers.
The owner’s Google Account
- We remove all the locations owned by that user.
- If we reinstate the owner’s Google Account, we also reinstate the owned locations.
A manager’s Google Account
- We suspend the manager on the accounts that they manage. It doesn't affect the locations.
- If we reinstate a manager’s Google Account, they regain access to the locations.
