Step-by-Step OfficialUSA.com Opt Out Guide

This OfficialUSA.com opt out guide will walk you through the steps of finding your personal information on and removing it from the people search website.

OfficialUSA is a United States directory and state guide. While the website’s home page says that OfficialUSA is a “directory of U.S. websites,” that’s a little misleading because the site also publishes personal information, similar to other data brokers.

You can search for an individual’s name in a few different ways, and if that person has one or multiple records on the website, you can find information like:

  • Full name and/or middle initial
  • City and state
  • Birth date and age
  • Street address
  • Family members and other people connected
  • Phone number
  • Email address

You may also be able to find out property details like the type of home the individual has, how large the lot is, how much it was sold for, etc.

If you find this amount of personal information when you search for your name, you may want to remove it. Having your first and last name, phone numbers, home address, possible relatives and other types of personal information so accessible can lead to a host of problems.

In order to prevent identity theft and even online harassment, go through the OfficialUSA opt out process to remove information from the website.

  1. The directory, which lists various names.
  2. The alphabetical U.S. persons index at the very bottom of the page.

2. Confirm That You Have the Right Person

Make sure that you have the right profile with your personal information instead of results for someone with the same name. Compare the data to ensure you have the right search result.

Note that the results page may have more than one listing, and they may not both be for you. You’ll have the opportunity to select your result during the OfficialUSA.com opt out process.
