Is It Dangerous To Have Personal Information Online?

Yes, having your personal information easily available online can pose a number of risks. Whether you’re a Florida resident and your info is listed in the directory or you live elsewhere and data brokers have sold your info to additional sites, you’ll want to opt out of search results.

Identity Theft

Cybercriminals are always on the hunt for personal data, like your name, address, credit card information, and Social Security number. They use this information to steal your identity, open accounts, make purchases, and commit any number of crimes that could damage your finances and reputation. Going through the opt out process is a must to keep yourself safe.

Loss of Privacy

When anyone can find out information about where you live and work, you put yourself in danger of in-person harassment or stalking. Aside from that, when your private information goes public, the data can be used to send you unwanted solicitations or targeted advertising, and you could also be the victim of cyberstalking.

People who have malicious intent will intimidate or threaten others online once they know where to find them and have personal info that they can blackmail them with. That’s why it’s so important to opt out of personal data websites.

Reputation Damage

The information that’s posted about you online could damage your reputation personally and professionally. People jump to judgments when they find information about someone else, even if what they learn is taken out of context or isn’t true. Even the way a people search site is worded could make it sound like the data about you is far more scandalous than it actually is. By going through the opt out process, you avoid these misunderstandings.


Even if you don’t end up being the victim of identity theft, other kinds of fraudulent behavior and scams can come your way when your personal info is so easy to access. False job offers, romance scams and phishing emails are just some of the situations you may deal with when scammers get ahold of your data. This could lead to you being tricked into providing even more personal information or having your money stolen.

As you’re figuring out the best strategy for removing your personal information from data broker websites, you’re likely to come across companies that offer free removal services. This may sound too good to be true, as it can be a long and tedious process to submit removal requests for the many data brokers out there.

Before you contact one of those companies, consider the following precautions.


Some opt-out services will actually help you remove your data from people search sites.

Unfortunately, other services will be ineffective, whether they don’t have the time or knowhow to follow through on their promise or they go so far as to try to scam you out of money or personal data.


For some data broker sites, it takes more than one removal request to have your information taken down. Companies that offer removal services for free won’t have the time to consistently follow-up with the data brokers that don’t cooperate with the opt-out request.

Long-Term Results

Even if the free service is able to remove your data from a people search site, there’s no guarantee that it’ll remain off that site forever.

While some free opt-out services may be legit, it’s important to approach them with caution.

It’s also possible that, even if the company doesn’t have ill intent, they’re not going to be able to deliver sufficient services for no cost. You could still end up having to follow up on the removal requests yourself.
