Registration Plate Blurring

We are committed to delivering you a better, safer experience.

That's why we have started blurring number plates on all photos uploaded to the site. This is to protect the car from identity theft and plate cloning. The automatic plate detection technology is still learning so please bear with us during this exciting roll out.

While the registration number may still present in the listing detail, key number plate details that differentiate a car – such as state taglines, colours and other symbols will be harder for criminals to discover.

If you are selling your car registered, please note that we require at least one clear photo of your registration plate uploaded on your ad for verification purposes. When your photos appear in your ad on the site, our system will blur these out.

What is plate cloning?
Plate cloning involves falsifying a genuine number plate and attaching it to another vehicle which is often the same make, model and colour. The criminal may then use the car with cloned plates to drive on tollways without consequences, drive dangerously or conduct other criminal activity, with the genuine vehicle owner often sought to pay fines or tolls
