Is Spokeo credible?


Spokeo is a legitimate information-gathering site. Spokeo takes the hassle out of searching for public information and compiles it into a single profile. Spokeo offers a secure and private way to search for information. Like similar services, it has been criticized for listing the personal information of unwitting individuals online and profiting from exploiting that data. 


In 2012, Spokeo was slapped with an $800,000 fine by the Federal Trade Commission for alleged deception and violations of the Fair Credit Reporting Act. Acting as a credit reporting agency triggered the Fair Credit Reporting Act, which includes a list of legal obligations, such as giving consumers a process to challenge incorrect information. Spokeo did not comply with them, according to the FTC.

Spokeo addresses listings and provides a complete property overview, including historical and public records. Spokeo states on their website that they can only remove part of the listing. They will, however, respect your online privacy and can remove any names associated with an address. 

How do I stop my name from appearing on Google?


You can prevent your name from appearing in search results from these places by ensuring your profiles aren't visible to search engines. Make sure all social media profiles are private. If your profile is public already, there is still time.


You have successfully opted out of Spokeo. The website states that you should allow 24-48 hours for the website to reflect these changes. 


Spokeo will instruct their partner sites to avoid displaying your name in their results. You are one step closer to online privacy. Once you have completed the Spokeo opt-out process, 100+ websites still collect and display your information online.
