Data with a Purpose

We generate a digital footprint with nearly every move we make on and offline. Our lives leave behind a trail of public records. By law, many of these records and the information they contain are made publicly accessible via the public domain.
Spokeo uses this pre-existing public data for one purpose: to give you the power to make informed decisions in your life. Find out why millions of people trust us every day: learn about the power of data and how it can help elevate all your personal connections.

Since we continually receive new and updated records from public sources, your information may reappear on Spokeo in the future without notice. Please regularly check Spokeo for additional listings that may appear.

To opt out a listing from Spokeo, please enter the URL of the profile. Depending on the nature of your request and the amount of data, your opt-out request should be processed in 24-48 hours.
