General Questions About Our Services

We searched for 1,000 individuals on 100 data broker websites and found that 99% of all information was only published on the top 50 brokers.

We will remove it from more than 50 main broker sites and if you find your information somewhere else broker sites, you can let us know, however, it is unlikely that you will find it on “110 sites across the internet”.

**When companies claim they remove from this many sites, it is only to make you feel like you’re getting more value when in reality they’re only finding your information on a limited number of websites.

Data brokers have high SEO (search engine optimization) results that will typically rank higher than any other search results. When we remove your information from these websites, they eventually disappear from google search results and the pages you want to appear on (Business pages, LinkedIn, etc) will start to surface at the top.

Your information is not worth much when it is scattered all over the internet in bits and pieces, but when data brokers collect it together into a profile it can be desirable information to marketing agencies, spammers, stalkers, ex’s, etc.

When we remove your profiles from these sites it removes data brokers’ ability to sell them. 

Yes. You must be a US Citizen to utilize DeleteMyInfo. We only remove from Data Broker Websites in the USA.

It may not happen immediately, but the short answer is yes.

It is open season on your personal information when it comes to data brokers. They continuously scan and scrape information from many sources and each has a time limit as to when your opt-out expires. Unless you’re prepared to continuously monitor these sites for your data re-appearing (as we do for you), then it is very likely that your profile will be re-published on their websites. It’s only a matter of time.

Data Brokers are companies that exist to profit from your personal information. They find and scrape your data from public records, social media, and voter records and package this information into a gift-wrapped box for anyone to buy.

This information consists of your name, age, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, family members, political affiliation, etc. all bundled together for people or companies to get a profile on who you are.

When you partner with DeleteMyinfo, we take immediate action to reduce your digital footprint by finding and deleting your information published on the top data broker sites.

By removing your information from data broker sites you can get rid of those spam emails and calls, and you will live a more private life online, make it harder for malicious entities to find your data, and improve your search results for things that matter – such as business pages, LinkedIn profiles, and positive articles.

If you are an attorney, financial advisor, or a company who operates under your name this is particularly important to remove data broker search results from the internet so that you can be found by your clients or employers.

DeleteMyinfo finds and deletes your personal information from and is not limited to these top 50 data broker websites:
**If you find your profile from other brokers’ sites that are not included in the report, let us know, send us the URL and we’ll be more than happy to work on it.

When we remove your information from these websites, they eventually disappear from google search results and the pages you want to appear on (Business pages, LinkedIn, etc) will start to surface at the top.

Yes, you can, however, the process can be really tedious and complicated.

You can start by searching your name in Google, take note that not all broker sites will appear on the search results, and doesn’t mean it didn’t show, it’s safe. You should be familiar with all the brokers’ sites keeping and selling your personal information. Each broker site has its own process and requirements to process your removal request – some websites need you to fill out forms; others require emails, and others request receiving confirmation codes via robocalls.

After you’ve submitted your opt-out request, you’ll need to keep an eye on and check if the listing has actually been removed. There are sites that will remove your listing immediately, while others will take days to weeks to complete the removal.

After these efforts, you should know that these brokers’ sites update their databases with new information all the time and your unauthorized profiles can reappear. You need to come back to these sites from time to time (ideally once a month) to check whether this has happened and submit a new opt-out request if your information has reappeared. Another thing that you need to know is that even after your information has been removed from the broker sites, there’s a chance that it will still appear on the Google search results and you need to request for google to remove them – yes, another complicated process.

Just processing the removal request will take roughly 10-15minutes per broker site (there are around 50 main broker sites that you need to work on). It’s up to you how often you will recheck if your information has been removed or reappeared on the brokers’ sites.

DeleteMyInfo does not have the authority to delete information published by government agencies (such as your county property appraiser, county jail, sheriff’s office, etc.).

However, data brokers scrape your information from these sources and add it to your profile on their websites. When we delete your profile from data broker websites it makes it much harder for anyone to find this information unless they visit the specific government website.
