My Personal Data Removal & Privacy Protection Checklist
Opt-out of these massive data brokers profiting off of your name, home address, phone number, relatives, and more
I initially created this personal data removal & privacy protection checklist for personal use. To keep better track of which super-sketchy data brokers I’d removed my data from… and which to continue battling.
This checklist is intended to be a good starting point to your personal privacy protection journey.
It’s not all-inclusive.
In addition to this list, I highly recommend following Michael Bazzell’s “Personal Data Removal Workbook & Credit Freeze Guide” which he provides free on his site inteltechniques.com
It’s an extremely thorough and helpful resource which provided much of the inspiration for this list.
In case you’d rather search for them directly, rather than following links, the sites we’ll be removing our data from are:
Spokeo, MyLife, Radaris, WhitePages, Intelius, RocketReach, BeenVerified, Acxiom, Infotracer, Lexis Nexis, TruePeopleSearch, BeenVerified, and SearchPeopleFree
Identify your leaked personal information (find):
Spokeo - People Search | White Pages | Reverse Phone Lookup
People search engine and free white pages finds phone, address, email, and photos. Find people by name, email, address…
Protect your personal privacy (remove):
Spokeo | People Search | Opt Out
You can easily remove your information from Spokeo by using our online opt out form.
