Check Your Privacy

Just saw this on fb and re-posted but wanted to post here for those interested:

Spokeo.com is a website that lists personal information about you for all the world to see. Your address, pictures of your property, phone number, email addresses, how many people live in your home, your credit score.....anything and everything! If you want to remove yourself go to www.spokeo.com/privacy.

 I was a bit disturbed to find some of the information that I found on myself and others on some random website without my consent.

Re: Check Your Privacy

  • Mindy posted this on FB the other day.  Most everything they had on me was incorrect.  Well, they did have my correct street address but the picture was not my house!  I really need to request my info to be removed but every time I try to access the link my computer won't connect.....thanks for reminding me!

  • OMG! Thank you! I think its funny though, according to them my house is worth $1M+, lol

  • I am not on there anywhere. :(
  • I'm nowhere to be found, but H's interests are "shopping and hanging out."

  • Make sure to check for your name AND email address to remove both.
  • Yeah, some of the info is obviously wrong (it says I'm in my 40s lol) but I'd rather be safe than sorry so I removed myself just in case.

  • Apparently my mom and I are in a house together and both "children."  Ha!

  • OMG wow. That is really scary!!! I am on their under my maiden name and my H is on their too. Which allows them to see info on both of our parents as well. I am removing both of us and am going to pass all of this info on.

    Thank you!!!

    For whatever reason, when I tried to have them remove my email search results, this is what I got:

    We cannot remove email search results. Please read our email removal instructions
     
    I am going to find away to write them and have it taken off, as soon as I get home.
  • Wow, I am all over that.  It's under my maiden name and it's my parents' address but there is some really detailed information including my zodiac sign, age range, and some other stuff.  But yeah, my house is worth 1 million too.  Wow, maybe I should sell...

    Remove.

  • Liz posted it the other day on FB too. I found it interesting that for my H, our house was listed as $1M plus, but under my name it said below average. It also said we both were single with no children. But the most incorrect part, was that it said my H was a female, and the picture of "him" was a teenage (or very early twenty-something) non-white female.

  • Thanks for this.  Who would have thought?  I will say though that it may be a good idea to search by both married and maiden name.  I looked up by my married name and they have nothing, but they have two listings for me under my maiden name.  Off to request they remove it. 
  • A lot of what it had for me was wrong. My sister and I are evidently married and live in my mom and stepdad's house together. 

    This made me laugh, but I submitted to have my entry deleted yesterday and it was gone immediately.

    Haaaaaaa!!! I will admit this made me laugh out loud.

  • Thanks for the info!
  • Thanks for posting this.  I had no idea & removed myself.

    If it shows information with your email then this is public to everyone just as if  you were to search on Google for the email address. You need to go to the websites that are listing the information and change your privacy settings.  The only information my email is displaying from me is an old photo and I have NO idea where it is coming from.
