  • Be sure to check People Search sites for an opt-out by looking for a “contact us” page or “removal policy”.
  • If a “people search” site doesn’t list contact information, try searching for the domain owner at whois.icann.org.
  • Be cautious when asked to provide ID such as driver’s license in order to opt-out of a “people search” site; this information may be added to profiles on other sites.   
  • Always keep your social media profiles set to “private” rather than “public” to avoid information being collected on you from these sites.
