spokeo directory - privacy concerns



There is a new online directory called Spokeo that compiles info from around the web.  Ick!  I found all our family and searched for some friends as well.  Too much info for my liking.


Go to spokeo.com and search for yourself.  Copy the URL from the directory page, then click on PRIVACY on bottom right hand corner.  Follow directions to remove yourself.  FYI, it only lets you remove two profiles per day per email address.


This is annoying.  I don’t like it.

I'm not sure that they really take it off for good, because I did this a year ago and it was gone when I checked back once, but now the info is back!
