In this post, we’ll cover what ThatsThem is and Step-by-Step instructions on How to Opt Out of ThatsThem.
What is ThatsThem?
ThatsThem is a people search site. Using a tool that accesses over 1 billion records, you can search and find out detailed personal information about someone with very little data. ThatsThem personal records include demographics, financial and real estate information, contact information, VIN numbers, and lifestyle data. Recently, ThatsThem was acquired by Spokeo, one of the leading providers of people search and background check services.

You can also search for your personal information by using your address, phone, email, IP or VIN. Click the appropriate tab, enter the requested information and then click the Search button.
