Optery’s Resources for High-Risk Communities

High-risk individuals

At Optery, we specialize in removing personal information from data brokers and people-search sites. These sites collect sensitive personal information including phone numbers, email, home addresses, relatives’ names, and more, and make it readily available to anyone through a simple Google search.

This online exposure makes people vulnerable to a wide range of digital and physical attacks, including phishing scams, identity theft, doxing, stalking, harassment, and violence. Malicious actors use the information found on data broker sites to find and target their victims, and high-risk groups are especially in need of protection.

To support these communities, Optery offers:
