Remove Personal Information from the Web

Are you aware that your personal information is available on the Internet for anyone to view? For little or no money your full name, date of birth, current and past addresses, income estimate, home value, and more are available at the click of a button. The companies who purchase this information and offer it to anyone who asks for it will tell you that this information helps employers do background checks on potential employees. What they won't tell you is that because they don't screen those who access your information these sites are a boon for telemarketers, stalkers and identity thieves who use this information to victimize millions of adults in the U.S. every year.

With your personal information so easily available, the biggest worry is identity theft. The information available on the web is enough to ruin your credit and cost untold thousands of dollars to repair. Beyond the threat of having your identity stolen, the availability of your personal information also means you could find yourself on direct marketing address and phone lists and the recipient of an unending pile of unsolicited advertising. Worse still, anyone from your past can quickly and easily find out where you currently live and how to contact you.

But there is something you can do about it. The first step to taking control of the publicly available information about you is knowledge. There are dozens of companies and web sites currently offering information about anyone. Each one uses various sources to compile a huge database of data and the information generally differs among each vendor. Discovering exactly what information about you is out there and accessible to anyone is where you should begin. Next you need to find out what policies each data supplier has for removing your personal information. Each company and web site has different procedures concerning data removal and finding those policies can be time consuming. However, if you invest in the research it can pay off in the end. With the necessary work it's possible to take back the power over your own information. What freedom is more important than ownership of your personal information?

Thanks for visiting www.unlistassist.com. We're currently working on tools to help make the process of finding and removing your personal data from the web easier. Keep checking back as we plan to start rolling out new features soon.

Below you'll find a table that lists the most well known web sites that collect personal information. You'll find a link to each site, the data sources they mine, the information they store on each individual, and the process for removing yourself from the site. If you would like to download the table as a PDF there's a link available below the table.
