ID True: How to Opt Out of ID True | Step-by-Step Instructions

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

What is ID True?

ID True is a data broker used to run a free background search on people. Through name search or reverse phone search, you can obtain a detailed report for anyone in the US. Their reports include the following information: 

  • Current Location & Address History
  • Contact Information with Phone Numbers & Email Addresses
  • Criminal Records & Arrest History
  • Sex Offender Status
  • Relatives & Business Associates
  • Social Media Accounts

The information they offer may be helpful for some, but can also pose a threat to average consumers. Records such as these are free and easily accessible online. Scammers, stalkers, and cybercriminals often use this information for fraud, social engineering, catfishing, and identity theft. This is why it is essential to reduce your digital footprint.  By limiting the amount of your information available online, you can limit the chance of privacy abuses.
