What is the Florida Residents Directory?
FloridaResidentsDirectory.com is a free people search site that publishes personal profiles of Florida residents. Visitors can look up an individual by entering their name, city, and state. The Florida Residents Directory also provides address, email, and phone number lookup services.
The website stores 13,679,287 Florida residents’ records and 162,360,007 historical records. The data includes:
– Full names
– Dates of birth
– Race and ethnicity
– Telephone numbers
– Voting profiles
The Florida Residents Directory is not Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) compliant, meaning the website can’t be used for consumer reporting purposes such as tenant and job screenings.
But with the unrestricted access websites like this one provide, almost anyone can use your data for just about anything. That includes criminal activities such as phishing, scams, identity theft, and even online harassment and stalking.
How long does it take the Florida Residents Directory to process my opt-out request?
The Florida Residents Directory should remove your data within 48 hours of receiving your opt-out request. It may take longer in some cases.
How long is the Florida Residents Directory opt-out process?
It should take you around 5 – 10 minutes to complete the Florida Residents Directory opt-out process.
How can I remove multiple records from the Florida Residents Directory?
In some cases, there may be multiple records containing your personal information. You’ll have to complete the data removal process for each one individually, however, the site requires you to wait 24 hours between each request.
Where does the Florida Residents Directory get its data?
The Florida Residents Directory collects data from Florida public voter registration records. In some cases, the information may not be correct. You can contact the Florida Department of State (DOS) to amend these errors.
Can the Florida Residents Directory add my information again, even after they approve my opt-out request?
It’s possible that your personal information may show up on the Florida Residents Directory again after you opt out. The site updates its database monthly and new data might not be an exact match to the old record you had removed.
This is a common problem with data brokers, which is why Incogni provides regular, repeated data removals.
Does the Florida Residents Directory have the right to use my data?
Yes, the Florida Residents Directory is legal and has the right to use public data under the Florida Information Protection Act of 2014 (FIPA). Under the same law, you have the right to request the website delete your personal information.
