How to Remove Yourself from Background Check Gateway

Background Check Gateway is a data broker that posts all kinds of personal information online. Going to Background Check Gateway automatically reroutes to US Search, so removing yourself from US Search will remove you from Background Check Gateway. This process requires you to mail or fax in your opt-out request.  After that, your listing should be removed within 48 hours.
