In the coming months, the Location History setting name will change to Timeline. If Location History is turned on for your account, you may find Timeline in your app and account settings.

Check facts about places on Google Maps

You can help verify information when Google needs additional verification about a place. Any Maps user can be a moderator. Local Guides will earn 1 point per fact checked. 

Specific edits are suggested to you based on your Location History and Search History. If you don’t have your location info turned on, you can’t enter moderator mode. You can verify facts on the map for things like:

  • Place existence
  • Hours
  • Closures
  • Reopenings

Tip: Only answer questions about facts you can verify with direct knowledge.
