In this post, we’ll cover what is and step-by-step instructions on How to Opt Out of

What is is the first online 411 service in US and Canada. Offering a free online information service, this data broker aims to help individuals locate people, businesses, services, and addresses. Moreover, the online services they offer are free of charge, in contrast to telephone-based 411 services.

The online directory services offered on their website make it so easy to connect with people and services, but this also means it leaves us exposed online. Our valuable information is bought and shared online in just a few clicks without our knowledge. This often results in phishing attempts, and unwanted spam calls and emails.

Currently, there are three ways to remove your personal information from data broker sites like
