Opt Out Guides

Your source for step-by-step instructions for removing your personal information from People Search Sites. 


When removing your personal info from people search sites, you can either use a paid service like Optery's paid plans, or you can submit the opt-out requests yourself. If you'd like to remove the profiles yourself, you can follow these step-by-step guides for each data broker and navigate to the data broker's self-service opt out page. Once there, you can start filling in the forms and submitting your removal requests by yourself. You can often email these companies directly with requests for removal and they will comply.

Removing yourself from the hundreds of data broker sites can be tedious (to say the least). Optery offers free tools to help consumers take control of their online privacy. To get free continuous privacy monitoring, all you need is an Optery account!
