Advanced Background Checks Opt Out Guide

December 5, 2023

Advanced Background Checks is a people search site that publishes your personal information – like your name, address, phone number, email, aliases, and possible relatives and associates – on their site for free. 

The site also includes sponsored links to more detailed background reports (with information such as court records, social media, etc.) from other data brokers. While these require a monthly subscription, “special limited time offers” mean that anyone can get your full details for as little as $1. 

To stop others from finding your personal information on Advanced Background Checks, you need to complete an opt-out request. Below, we show you how.
