In this post, we’ll cover what CorporationWiki is and provide step-by-step instructions on How to Opt Out of CorporationWiki.
What is CorporationWiki?
CorporationWiki is a data broker that offers historical data on businesses like the names of business owners, services the company provided, and the employees. Anyone can look up information about you and your prior employment history, as well as your positions within a company. It is very easy to conduct a name search on over 40 million people and a company search on over 50 million businesses on the CorporationWiki site.
Your personal information can be sold to websites like CorporationWiki, putting you at risk for identity theft. To help you identify these websites, Optery offers you scan and removal services for your exposed private information. We cover more than 200 data broker sites where you can find your information exposed. You can sign up for a free Exposure Scan and receive tools you can use to remove your information, or you can upgrade to our paid subscription and let our Opt-out Agents help you with the removals.

How do I Opt Out of CorporationWiki Manually?
1) Navigate to the CorporationWiki website page https://www.corporationwiki.com/.
2) Enter your name or company name in the search box. Click Search.
Note: The Opt Out process is the same for a name or company search. A name search is used in the opt out instructions that follow.
3) Find your listing and click on it. Copy the URL of your profile from the address bar.
4) Go to the opt-out page https://www.corporationwiki.com/profiles/public. Paste the URL of your profile in the area provided. Type in your email address and full name. Click I agree to the terms. Submit request.
IMPORTANT: Whenever contacting a data broker, we highly recommend using a disposable email address, and NOT using your own primary email address. Data brokers are known to add you to their marketing lists and databases whenever you contact them, even if the purpose is to opt out! For more info on Disposable Emails click here
