personal info

Clear your personal information

Did you know that you can remove your personal information from those creepy info-aggregating websites? (Spokeo is one of the worst; in most cases, it immediately pulls up a satellite photo of the person’s house). Surprisingly, getting rid of this information is often just a click or phone call away.

This site tells you how to purge your information from Intelius, Acxiom, MyLife, Zabasearch, Spokeo, BeenVerified, PeekYou, USSearch, PeopleFinders, PeopleLookup, PeopleSmart, PrivateEye, WhitePages, USA-People-Search, Spoke, PublicRecordsNow, DOBSearch, and Radaris. Note: Some of these require a scan of your driver’s license. That sounds nuts but apparently you can black out the picture and most other info aside from the stuff they presumably already have: Your name, DOB, and address.
