Follow the below steps to complete a Kids Live Safe opt-out.
Kids Live Safe is a people search site/data broker that collects and posts people’s personal information online.
The site’s main focus is showing members potential threats in their area, i.e., information about registered sex offenders near them (which isn’t foolproof – data brokers have been fined in the past for suggesting certain individuals were potential sex offenders when they were not).
However, Kids Live Safe can also be used more generally to find out personal information about individuals you’re curious about, as well as figure out who is behind a particular phone number.
As with any people search site or data broker, it’s always good practice to opt out of these kinds of databases.
To remove yourself from Kids Live Safe, you must fill out their online form. After that, your listing will be removed within 24 hours.

Kids Live Safe FAQs
Here are some common questions that people have about Kids Live Safe.
What is Kids Live Safe?
Kids Live Safe is a people search/data broker service that aggregates billions of public records to provide background checks on individuals, with a particular focus on sex offenders.
In business since 2009, it claims to provide access to more than 350 million people in their background database, 500 million phone records, and 750,000 registered offender records.
Kids Live Safe reports include the following information:
Names and aliases
Phone & email information
Employment history, professional licenses, and corporate affiliations
Relatives, associates, and neighbor records
Felonies and misdemeanors
Social media records
Users can find reports based on a person’s first and last name or phone number. It is also possible to search for people by neighborhood. This is a feature that Kids Live Safe markets as “a comprehensive accounting of offenders near your home.”
Kids Live Safe lets members set up monitoring and email alerts on four individuals and four “monitoring areas” to find out when information about a person changes or a new sex offender registers within a user’s monitoring areas.
Important note: While you may use Kids Live Safe to find out personal information about others, other people can also use it to find out information about you. What’s worse is that the data on people search sites and data brokers isn’t always accurate. According to one report, 40% of information on data brokers is incorrect – one data broker has even been fined by the FTC for wrongly identifying people as sex offenders. As a result, it’s always a good idea to opt out of people search sites like Kids Live Safe.
Is Kids Live Safe legit?
Kids Live Safe is legit in that it provides personal information on individuals without breaking any laws. However, the accuracy of this information can vary.
Does an account on Kids Live Safe cost anything?
An account on Kids Live Safe costs $29.93 per month. You can also get a 7-day trial for $1.
Is Kids Live Safe a paid site to view?
Yes, Kids Live Safe is a paid site to view. To become a member, you have to pay $29.93 per month, although there’s a 7-day trial that costs $1 (membership renews automatically after the trial is over).
Is Kids Live Safe accurate?
Kids Live Safe data is as accurate as data on any other people search site/data broker, i.e., it may be accurate in some areas and totally inaccurate in others or completely false.
For example, in the past, the FTC fined a data broker for selling inaccurate background checks that suggested potential employees were sex offenders when, in fact, they might have just shared the same name as an actual offender.
For this reason, it’s important to opt out of Kids Live Safe and other people search sites.
