Keep Your Personal Information Off the Internet

If you care anything about your own privacy, never post your address and phone number online. The primary reason is that numerous organizations are constantly searching for your personal information so they may collect it and sell it to others. The definition of “others” varies widely, ranging from legitimate law enforcement agencies to con artists of all sorts.

Here are some of the most popular sites, and ways to opt out:

Spokeo

PeopleSmart

PeekYou

Pipl

LexisNexis (Requires police report)

Whitepages

Zabasearch (Requires you to fax an ID to them)

US Search
