Spokeo Listing Removal – We’ve Got You Covered

by Katie • May 5, 2011

Inside Spokeo, People Search, Privacy Unplugged

Spokeo RemovalAs you know, Spokeo is a people search engine that pulls public information from online and offline sources and compiles it into an organized listing. Spokeo can be used to reconnect with friends and family, manage your online reputation, and more! Of course, we recognize that some users may prefer not to have public information aggregated in one place, and wish to remove their listing. We didn’t forget about you! In fact, we’ve taken many steps to provide you with a fast, painless, and easy-to-use opt out feature.

As part of our commitment to privacy, Spokeo offers an opt out feature that is faster and easier to complete than most other people search sites. All that is required of users is an email verification process – you’ll be done in a few clicks. You won’t have to submit hard copies of driver’s licenses, Social Security numbers, or other forms of identity via fax or mail like other people search sites require you to do. We want to serve everyone’s needs, including those who wish to remove their listing.

However, please bear in mind that due to the extraordinary volume of data available and the complexity of matching all opt out listings with future listings, it is possible that errors may occur, and we strive to minimize and correct these problems as rapidly as possible.

For detailed instructions on removing your listing, please click here. Our Privacy FAQs can be found here.

If for any reason our online opt out process is not working for you, please contact us and our customer service representatives will do their best to help you remove your information. Finally, as always, please contact us with any feedback, suggestions, or testimonials – your insights help improve Spokeo!
