It is not very often that I get internet/tech info from my dad, but there’s a first time for everything.
This website displays your home street, even if you haven’t listed such a thing on Facebook, etc.
It also says your general age range and gender.
It isn’t always right. Thought I was a chick. Guess it has a 50/50 shot.
In any case, I highly recommend getting yourself off of a site that you probably didn’t even know you were on.
Steps to do so:
- Search for yourself on spokeo.com. Copy the link from the search results. (I don’t know if you necessarily have a “profile page”, but the search result link itself works, provided it has your name in the URL.)
- Go to the privacy page.
- Put that URL from #1 in and fill out the rest of your form.
- Go to the email address that you gave.
- Click the link in the email to finish the removal process.
The removal process worked for me, as I cannot see myself on there now.
I highly recommend you do this and pass this info on to others. No need to snopes this, as your evidence is found right on spokeo.com
So, thanks again to my father.
