    Thanks for the heads up. This site is creepy! Have you investigated their partner – Reputation Defender? I'd like to see more info on that.

    Keep up the good work.

      Hi Cindi, Thanks for your comment! No, we haven’t delved into Reputation Defender yet, but will check it out–thanks. The level of online access to private information is, indeed, creepy. It’s reached a fever pitch and I have to say it’s sad when an “all access” pass to your life basically costs less than a gallon of milk…

    I think both Spokeo and BeenVerified are pretty interesting people search sites. However, they have to really make sure their personal data is accurate or it could cause problems.

    There is a problem with this simple solution as the instructions come from spokeo's website. It might remove the display on spokeo but it wont stop the sales of the same identity information being sold to other companies. That same information is still there, sold but not displayed, and this is not a solution. This does not stop the sales of the same identity.

    "You can also remove your Spokeo listing from public searches for free. Please note that removing your Spokeo listing from public searches does not remove your information from the third-party data sources. Your information will still be shown on other people search sites, and you will need to contact those third-party sites one-by-one, or use ReputationDefender to protect your online identity. "

    Why has no one started a class action suit? The information on me is very misleading!

    How do I get them to remove my picture which is being used for everyone ion the country with my name ?

      Hi James, I'm not completely sure –and it's an interesting question as it clearly works the same way a google image search works–you look for one "john doe" and you get every john doe's image. I may have to look into this more–have you tried contacting their customer service or "contact us" yet? I'm curious as to what their response was…thanks for bringing this up.

    "Aprx credit score & wealth" is and invasion of privacy and potentially harmfull to ones character. Why has some young eager lawyer not gone after these guys! Can you imagine the jury after their names were pulled up! Not an attorney here but: Say the term libel when referring to the written defamation of someone's character. Libel is the defamation of an individual's or an entity's character which is published in a written medium, such as a newspaper. However, any written communication can be libelous as long as it's transmitted to a third party.

    Steve you have a good point but the damage is done once one posts harmfull and potentially wrong information on the net. Removing it does not matter once your reputation has been tarnished.
