Public Data Check is a data broker that posts personal information online. To remove yourself from Public Data Check, you must email them directly. After this, it is unclear how long it will take them to remove your information.
How to Remove Yourself From Public Data Check
Unfortunately, Public Data Check does not have a formal process for removing yourself from their website. They also do not show you your own record unless you create an account.
To find out what information Public Data Check has about you:
2. Click on your name, and fill out this information.
3. They will use your email information to sell, add to their database, and send you emails. To avoid this, we recommend using a disposable email address like a Masked Email from Blur.
To Opt-Out of Public Data Check:
4. Once they have sent you your report, send them an email with the information that they had, such as your name, address, and age, and request that the information be removed from their website. Do not send information that they do not already have, and if the information they have is incorrect, use it anyway.
5. After this, it is unclear how long it will take them to remove your information from their site. Be patient and persistent.
