You will see a search bar on this page, where you are required to fill in your information. The information needed is your first name and last name. Then you are to provide your address, that is the city and state you are in. Once you are done filling in the information, you are free to click search.
As usual, on clicking search, you should expect several search results. There are probably ten other people with your name in your city. However, there is a way that you can distinguish your profile. The results have more information on the profiles. To find yours scroll through the page. Be careful not to pick the wrong profile as this will mean that your profile will stay longer on Peoplewhiz and expose your data for a longer time.
On identifying your profile, simply click on the ‘That’s me’ button that is on the specific profile.
On clicking the ‘That’s me’ button, you will be prompted to provide your email address. Enter the right email address, then click next for the next state of Peoplewhiz opt-out.

You will get prompts for uploading an image of your ID. There is the option of sending a snail mail and faxing them a copy of your ID. It is still critical to ensure there is privacy even in this step. Blur out every other information apart from your picture and names.
