Google Maps Street View was created in 2007, two years after Google Maps, to be able to map the world for everyone online.
It is has since become the tool for people for directions and finding a destination.
Yet the 360-degree cameras, whilst attempting to map the routes, will often catch innocent bystanders on camera.
One man found this out the hard way after being caught in an awkward situation by his girlfriend.

However she then decided to confront him a few hours later: “When Sasha came home, I immediately called him to computer and asked him to find that address in the map.
“When the image loaded, Sasha’s face changed in colour. I looked in his eyes, waiting for explanations.”
He then admitted that whilst he didn’t love the other woman, he had been unfaithful.
She then subsequently broke up with him, and hopes to “meet a new love,” despite initially blaming the website for her unhappiness.
