How to Remove Your Name from Background Checks: Are you looking for a way on how to remove your name from background checks online? If you are in the market for a new job, applying to college, obtaining a loan, buying a new home or even testing the waters with online dating. Removing your name from background checks is a great start.
Learn how to remove yourself from some of the most popular background sites. By working with our team of reputations specialists we will remove your personal and private information from over 50+ data aggregate background sites.
To be blunt, most background check websites are just awful. They scour public records from across the United States and publish very private data about anyone and everyone. This personal data is often incomplete, outdated and even inaccurate.
Furthermore, these background check websites will bait users onto their domain by displaying preliminary results for free searches. This of course along with a message that additional information is available at a price. Essentially anyone with $10 and an internet connection can find out where you live, who you are related to, where you work, your phone number, your social media profiles and much more.

Background Websites Explained
To make matters even worse, these databases never receive permission from people listed on the site. The worse part about it is that millions of Americans are on these databases and they don’t even know it! How can you work to protect your online reputation and privacy when you aren’t sure where your information is in the first place.
Thankfully, there are ways to have your personal data removed from nearly every single one of these background check sites. However, please keep in mind this is a long process. Contacting each webmaster is not only stressful but there is no guarantee they will respond. Sometimes that can take months or years depending on the number of requests they receive.
If your privacy is important to you, there are important steps you can take to protect it. The odds are your information is already exposed and within these background check websites. If you want to remove it, look no further. Our team has been successfully removing personal records on these domains for over a decade. Our process is extremely simple, fast and affordable for anyone.
