Alert: Spokeo.com

A good friend sent me a message about a site called spokeo.com. It’s a new online phone book that includes personal information. It has everything from pics you posted on Facebook, your approximate credit score, the approximate value of your home and other information you probably don’t want people to find with quickly or easily.

If privacy is a concern, I would take a look at the site. If you would like to remove yourself from the site, follow these simple steps:

  1. Search for your name
  2. Copy the URL of your page
  3. Go to the bottom right corner of the page and click on Privacy
  4. Fill out the form.
  5. You will be sent a confirmation email to remove yourself from the list.

Hope this helps.

Special thanks to Fred Jackson, no relation, for letting me know about this site.
