How Our Opt-Out System Works

by Harrison • January 12, 2011

Hype and Myths, Inside Spokeo, News Flash, People Search

Some people have been reporting to us that their opted-out listings have reappeared on Spokeo.com.  After investigating these cases, we’ve found that this has been caused by certain misunderstandings and false expectations about how Spokeo works. We would like to address this issue and clarify any confusion. 

When you choose to opt out of Spokeo, we place a permanent flag on your listing so that it does not ever reappear on Spokeo.com. We are constantly receiving new and updated listings, and we try very hard to match these new listings to the existing ones and preserve your privacy preference. However, a computer cannot know the difference between "John Smith at 1234 Nowhere Street" and "John Smith at 5678 Somewhere Avenue", though you may know that you moved. So if a new listing contains your new address, or if there are significant typos which prevent our computers from matching an existing listing, you will see a new listing for your name. We are constantly improving our matching algorithms in order to maintain your privacy. Spokeo guarantees that our opt out policy is among the best on the Internet.

If our online opt-out process is not working for you, please contact support@spokeo.com and our customer service representatives will do their best to help you remove your information. Please be aware that we are currently experiencing an extremely large volume of feedback; our support department will reply to your requests in the order received.

  23. Brian says: Jun 1st, 2012

    Why is my information here to begin with and why do you continue to gather that information, when clearly no one wants that? This is a market that should not be tapped.

  24. Katie says: Jun 4th, 2012

    Hi Brian, Spokeo specializes in aggregating and organizing vast quantities of people-related information from a large variety of public sources. People use Spokeo to find old friends, family members, distant relatives, to identify unknown callers and emails, and more. Spokeo respects your privacy, and you can easily opt out of Spokeo’s public search if desired on our privacy page: http://www.spokeo.com/privacy. Please email our customer support at support@spokeo.com, or call them at 1-800-699-4264 if you have any additional questions. Thank you.

  57. S. Y. says: Sep 17th, 2012

    I can see how Spokeo can be a good service for some and; even though, the information gathered comes from public sources my dispute would be that this site makes it easy for anyone with bad intentions to find an individual. At the very least it takes effort to drive to the DMV or courthouse to dig out dirt on somebody or find out where they live. This site, while it can be good, it can also hurt people. I am not pleased that my mortgage pmt amount was published on here. I understand Spokeo’s argument but not all public info is easy to get. This website has changed that. In a way, it does feel like a violation of privacy. Just because it’s public doesn’t mean I want it advertised.

  83. Tony says: Dec 19th, 2012

    I submitted the opt out at http://www.spokeo.com/privacy and afterwards it says for me to check my email. Nothing has come. I will email the email address you mention but I think this site is absolutely horrible. Just because it is legal to aggregate and publish everyone’s personal information doesn’t mean it’s moral. Great example of a company doing something for money without regard for who it hurts.

  84. Katie says: Dec 19th, 2012

    Hi Tony, Spokeo respects your privacy interests. Spokeo aggregates publicly available information from phone books, social networks, marketing surveys, real estate listings, and other public sources. This third-party data is then indexed through methods similar to those used by Google or Bing to create a listing. For further assistance, please contact our customer support at support@spokeo.com and provide the link to your listing so they can opt it out for you. Thank you.

  85. SC KANE says: Dec 20th, 2012

    I checked your site to see if there was any info on me. Turns out that not only do you have WAY too much on me, there’s someone who’s stolen my identity! SO, here’s what you guys are going to do: you’re going to delete all of the info on me, AND you’re going to give me the information AT NO CHARGE on the person who’s using my name…or you can simply give it to my attorney in court. Your choice, scumbags.

    PS I will check back in a couple of weeks to assure this has been done.

  103. Vanessa says: Jan 25th, 2013

    Hi Rod,

    pokeo respects your privacy interests. Once you opt out a specific listing from our system, it is flagged to never re-appear. However, we are constantly receiving new and updated information and we try very hard to match it to existing listings in order to preserve your privacy preference. A new listing may appear (not a reappearance of a previously opted-out listing) when the data is not able to be linked to a previous item. We recommend checking back on our site for new listings periodically and apologize for any inconvenience. You may opt out listings from our privacy page at http://www.spokeo.com/optout, or email our customer support at support@spokeo.com and provide them with the links to your specific listings so they can remove them for you. Thank you.

  160. Bob says: Aug 2nd, 2013

    i am reading Vanessa’s canned replies to everyone wanting their private info removed from spokeo. The “spokeo respects your privacy” is completely laughable. The entire premise of the website is an invasion of privacy. Putting up info on home value, income, ethnicity, photos?? A nice easy service for any stalkers out there or others looking to steal IDs. If someone wants to post that info about themselves on e.g. Linked In and let others view it that is their prerogative but Spokeo’s business model is just creepy.

  161. Vanessa says: Aug 5th, 2013

    Hi Bob,

    Thanks very much for your comments. Like you’ve noted about our responses to others we respect the various privacy interests of users and provide a very simple opt out for any listing to be removed (www.spokeo.com/optout). If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact our customer support team. Thanks!
