Manual Opt Out of Spokeo
1. Go to Spokeo.com
2. Search for yourself. Once you’ve found the record(s) that contain your personal information hit “See Results”. If there is more than one record with your information, I recommend opening a new tab for each one, as we will need the URL associated with that record.
2. Verify each record is you and not someone with the same name.
3. Now copy and paste the URL from the record you found in step 2 into the box that says “Enter Url here”. Then enter your email into the box, making sure you have access to this email.
4. Head to the email you entered in Step 3, as you should have received an email from Spokeo support asking you to confirm your opt-out request. Follow the instructions in the email and your opt-out process will be complete.
How long will it take to remove my information from Spokeo?
It should take you roughly 5-15 minutes to complete this opt-out process.
When will my information be removed from Spokeo
Generally speaking, you should expect Spokeo to take 15-30 business days to remove your information from their website.
Will my information be added back to Spokeo in the future?
Your information could be added back to Spokeo in the future, however, there is no guarantee and you will not be notified when it happens. If you want to make sure your personal information stays off their website, you will need to actively monitor it or subscribe to an identity monitoring service like Dataseal.
How does Spokeo sell my information?
Spokeo offers your information to its users in the form of a report which will include your personal contact details such as name, address, phone number, and other details such as criminal records or financial reports.
How does Spokeo get my information?
Spokeo gathers information from various sources across the web in order to compile records of every individual in their database. The majority of this information is found by scraping publicly available resources such as court records, warranty cards, and mortgage deeds, however, they may also purchase bulk data from unofficial websites to further expand their database.
