Spokeo Listing Removal – We’ve Got You Covered

Written by Katie May 5, 2011

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!

    Hello Nina, Spokeo respects your privacy interests. Once you opt out a specific listing from our system, it is flagged to never re-appear. However, we are constantly receiving new and updated information and we try very hard to match it to existing listings in order to preserve your privacy preference. A new listing may appear (not a reappearance of a previously opted-out listing) when the data is not able to be linked to a previous item. We recommend checking back on our site for new listings periodically and apologize for any inconvenience. You may opt out listings from our privacy page at http://www.spokeo.com/privacy, or email our customer support at support@spokeo.com and provide them with the links to your specific listings so they can remove them for you. Thank you.

    Is there anyway someone can reinstate their profile once they opt out?

  • Vanessa
    Vanessa |

    Hi Patrick, Unfortunately, there isn’t a way to reinstate a profile once it’s been opted out. Thanks!

  • Rita Luetkenhaus |

    Please remove my address from your data base. It is dangerous to list people’s address on a website that someone can just google their name. I ask this be removed immediately and permanently. In fact, I would like all information about me deleted and I would like to know how you got this information in the first place.

    It’s despicable that you post information publicly about people’s annual income.

    Hi Roberta, Thanks so much for reaching out to us. Please note that we do not post personal financial information. The income levels listed on profile pages are actually neighborhood averages. Please let us know if you have any additional questions. -Spokeo

  • keith vanderlip |

    All information spokeo has entered for my residence @ 415 castle rd Rochester ny 14623 is completely wrong. I really don’t care that this information is listed, but I am very upset that it is totally incorrect. My family and I have lived here for 37 years. You really should be able to get it right.
