ArrestFacts Opt Out & Data Removal Guide is a people search site that collects and publishes real criminal, civil, police, and court records from every jurisdiction in America online for the public. 

While many may see this as a public service tool, it is an invasion of privacy and comes with serious risks for the subjects of these records.

If you are one of them, you may be experiencing various effects from nuisance spam, robocalls, and junk mail, to the more extreme: online harassment, discrimination, difficulty finding housing or jobs, and more. 

Thankfully, you can remove your record from ArrestFacts by following their opt-out process. It only takes a few minutes. Follow our step-by-step instructions below. 

We recommend you check other data brokers as it is likely that your records are on many of these websites if they are on one.  You can also opt out of and other data broker websites automatically with a subscription to Incogni.

Your record should be removed from ArrestFacts within 48 hours. However, if this website has your details, there will likely be at least dozens of other data brokers that sell or publish the same information. 

To find these websites, look up your name online and see what comes up. Also search for data brokers operating in your area, and data brokers that deal with criminal and police records.

After you remove your personal information, it’s also important that you check back after some time. Most data brokers will respawn your record over time, meaning you will have to complete the removal process periodically.
