Is It Legal To Access Someone’s Criminal Record?

Knowing that strangers, potential employers, friends and more can find your criminal record online can feel scary and overwhelming. You’re probably wondering if it’s even legal to find someone’s arrest or police records online.

Unfortunately, most criminal records, including court records, police records, etc., are part of the public record and therefore accessible to the public.

This means that (a) it’s not illegal to look for someone’s criminal information online, and (b) it’s not illegal for people search databases to make that information available.

However, many websites, like ArrestFacts.com, have an option for requesting removal of your personal information. While they’re not required to take down your information unless it’s incorrect or it’s not supposed to be part of the public record, some of these sites will be cooperative. That’s why it always pays to put in a removal request.

Online Reputation Management Helps With Personal Information Control

Knowing that the ArrestFacts data broker and other data broker websites have so much of your personal information, including court records, can make it feel like personal information control is out of your hands.

Even if you have a successful ArrestFacts opt out experience, you’ll need to submit a removal request on all the other data broker sites online.

Each one will have step by step instructions to follow, a confirmation link to click and a waiting period. Data brokers don’t immediately take down your information from their website. Some may not remove it at all, even if you follow the step by step directions perfectly.

Your online reputation and your future depend on having a positive presence in search results. When a data broker gets ahold of sensitive information and lists it on a public website, anyone can find out that information about you.

If you need help to opt out of ArrestFacts or you want advice about taking back information control from other data brokers, contact one of our specialists today. Call 844-461-3632 or fill out the form below for a free consultation.
