LexisNexis is a data broker platform that collects and sells personal data to businesses and other other organizations. Much of this data is information that you probably don’t want being passed around, including your phone number, home address, family members details and even your salary.
While it’s legal to collect and sell this data, problems can occur when it falls into the wrong hands, as once a data broker sells information to a buyer, they no longer have any control over it.
This is often how organizations behind spam, scam, and robocalls as well as spam and scam texts get hold of personal data. Therefore, if you want to protect your identity, you should always be monitoring data brokers sites such as LexisNexis and removing personal data whenever you find it.
To request a LexisNexis opt-out, you must submit an online form. After this, it may take up to 30 days for your information to be removed.

After you’ve completed an opt-out of LexisNexis, your personal information that you’ve requested to be removed will be suppressed. This means that searches for your records on the LexisNexis databases will not be found by any other user of the platform.
If you’ve suffered from identity theft, or even cyberstalking, removing your records from LexisNexis will help lower the possibility of criminals and predators accessing your personal information.
