AnyWho Opt Out & Data Removal Guide  | Incogni
While useful in some ways, data broker sites like AnyWho can be a huge threat to your online privacy and security. These websites form intricate networks that spread your personal information far and wide on the internet.
AnyWho.com 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.
Your online activity, relatives and relationships, court records, financial information, and more can fall into the hands of perfect strangers for only a small price. Not only does this lead to nuisance robocalls and spam mail, but also serious risks such as phishing, scams, identity theft, and online harassment.
Thankfully, you can remove your data from both AnyWho and Intelius by completing the online removal request form on Intelius.com. It should only take around 10 minutes to complete, then your data will be removed within 1 business day.
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.

6) Continue your data removal journey
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.
It might be a bit time-consuming, but your privacy and security are well worth the effort! If you don’t have enough time to dedicate to this yourself, try Incogni. Our fully automated data removal service handles the entire process on your behalf.
