Securing your connections
Removing all your personal "findable" information from the web
A lot of your information, including your address and phone number, is available to find on the internet by simply searching your name (use quotation marks when searching your name, i.e. “Jane Smith”, and be sure to check the image results too) and the place where you live.
You can try to remove this information by visiting the following “people finder” websites and requesting them to remove your listing:
- Spokeo (to remove listing: http://www.spokeo.com/opt_out/new)
- Anywho.com (to remove listing: http://www.anywho.com/help/privacy)
- Intelius (to remove listing: https://www.intelius.com/optout.php)
- Whitepages (to remove listing: https://support.whitepages.com/hc/en-us/articles/203263794-Remove-my-listing-from-Whitepages-)
Additionally, create a Google Alert to get an email every time your name appears online.
