AnyWho Opt Out & Data Removal Guide is a people search site that allows users to find people, places, and businesses, using the Yellow Pages, people search, and reverse phone lookup services. While it provides only basic information such as your address and phone number, it also displays links to Intelius, which owns and operates AnyWho. On Intelius, users can find far more detailed personal profiles. 

Thankfully, you can remove your data from both AnyWho and Intelius by completing the online removal request form on PeopleConnect, another data broker. The process requires you to enter some personal information, which the data broker might then keep and use. The privacy benefits of removing your record from these sites probably outweigh this drawback, however. 

Follow our instructions below and check out our opt-out guides for some of the other major data brokers to get your personal information off the market.  You can also subscribe to Incogni and let us remove your listing from AnyWho automatically.

With that, you have successfully opted out of AnyWho and Intelius. If your online privacy is important to you, however, this won’t be enough. 

Just like AnyWho and Intelius, many other data broker sites are interconnected and share data with each other. If one site has your personal information, many others probably do as well. And there are hundreds of data brokers in the US alone. 

To find which of these companies deal with your data, you’ll have to do a little research. Look yourself up online for starters. Most people search sites that have your information should show up. Then research data brokers active in your area to find those that won’t show up by searching your name alone. 

Follow our other opt-out guides to help you on this journey. Or you can start from these 10 guides:
