Set your home and work locations

Set your home and work addresses to get commute traffic information, travel help, and more.

If you set your home or work addresses, they may be used to estimate your location when it’s likely that you’re at one of these places.

You can edit or delete your home or work addresses in Google Maps.

If the location of your labeled places was used to help get your search results, the location information at the bottom of the search results page will say Based on your places (Home) or (Work).
