Personal data is valuable information that everyone wants to keep to themselves, but unfortunately, it does not always. With the advent of the Internet and social networks, our lives have forever lost peace of mind for their safety. Not infrequently, your name, address, phone number, and other information can be seen by anyone on data aggregator sites, or “people search sites”. Such sites are very convenient for criminals who are interested in you, which means that if your data is entered into such sites, it can become a security risk. In this article, we will tell you how to remove your data from people’s search sites.
Get ready to unregister your information
Before deleting the data already entered on various sites, it is worth stopping their entry there, otherwise, you will get a vicious circle. For your personal information to stop going to people search sites, you need to do the following:
- Create or register a Gmail account for spam/recording – this is the email you will receive all the information you need to cancel your registration
- Register for a phone number through Google Voice – this number will also be for unsubscribing purposes only, and there is no way to associate it with your phone number
This is all so that you can remove your information from aggregator sites without providing your real email and phone number.
