Last Modified Date: Feb 11, 2024

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

What is Spyfly?

Spyfly is a data broker that offers public record background checks for people in the United States. The site provides users with access to data from thousands of different sources, including government records and private databases. Spyfly is often used by employers to screen potential employees, landlords to screen potential tenants, and people looking for information on someone they are dating or considering doing business with.

While Spyfly may be a useful tool for some people, others may not want their personal information to be easily accessible by anyone who wants to search for it. If you choose not to opt-out of Spyfly, your personal information will remain public and accessible to anyone. This could put you at risk for identity theft, fraud, or other malicious activities. Additionally, your information may be sold to third-party marketers without your consent. This could lead to unwanted marketing messages and spam as a result.
