Fight back against people search industry
...and the online tracking companies that feed them!
We've filed a formal complaint with the FTC that challenges people search companies' deceptive & unfair practices.
What is the people search industry?
People search websites make a business out of collecting, publicly posting, and selling your personal information online . . . to anyone.
They're also referred to as "info brokers" and "data brokers."
They usually have your:
- Phone number
- Family members
- Date of birth
- Previous addresses
They also sell more detailed info, like real estate purchases, court and criminal records, and employment history, as part of their reports.
You've probably heard of some of the biggest people search sites, like MyLife.com, Spokeo.com, Intelius.com, and PeopleFinders.com, but there are over 180
They collect your information without your knowledge or consent and sell it to whoever's buying. You don't have a say in it, and you don't see any benefit from it.
Most of the people you want to get in touch with you already have your contact information. These sites enable stalkers, angry exes, annoying marketers, and anyone who's looking for you to find you.
