Use our Councilon opt-out guide to delete your personal data from this people search site. 

Councilon is a people search site that collects and displays people’s personal information online. 

Having your personal information easily accessible on data brokers like Councilon can increase your risk of scams, stalking, doxxing, identity theft, harassment, and other crimes. For this reason, you should remove your data from Councilon and other people search sites and data brokers.

Some of the information Councilon has (age, aliases, phone number, home address with map, and social media) is accessible for free while more comprehensive data (such as criminal checks and property records) is behind a paywall.
