Edit info about a place

You can tell us if you see wrong information about a place, like:

  • It's permanently closed, moved, or it doesn't exist
  • The name is wrong
  • The address or marker location is wrong
  • The category is wrong (like "clothing store" or "toy store")
  • The phone number, website, or hours are wrong


Suggest an edit

  1. On your Android phone or tablet, open the Google Maps app Google Maps.
  2. Search for a place or tap it on the map.
  3. Scroll down and select Suggest an edit.
  4. Follow the instructions.
  5. Tap Send Send.

Note: If someone submits an edit for a place, you might see the edit. If you’re familiar with the place, tell us if the edit is right or wrong by tapping on the suggested edit. Your feedback will help Google Maps decide if the place's information should be changed.

How long it takes for corrections to be published

We review your edits, so your changes might take some time to be updated on the map. Google may email you about the status of your edits and may forward you questions from other people who review your edits.

What makes a good edit


Use the official or primary name for a place. Don’t add any extra comments in the name field.


Enter a readable address. If Maps suggests an address that’s incomplete, add additional details in the address.


When you move a marker, make sure you zoom in far enough and switch to satellite view. This will help you see buildings and move the marker on the building where the place is.


Use specific categories when describing a place. For example, use "Clothing store" instead of "Store".


Enter the hours a place is open. You can add different hours for different days of the week.

Phone number

Use the primary phone number. Check that the number you suggested is correct first. 


Use the official website. Don’t include links to social networking sites, review aggregators, or other similar websites.
