Total Time: 5 minutes

  1. Search for your record on OfficialUSA.com

    Go to OfficialUSA.com, enter your first and last name in the search field, and click the suggestion that pops up below. 

  2. Copy the URL from the browser address bar

    You’ll get to a search results page. There may be several records belonging to other people with the same name as you. This is ok. Copy the URL from the address bar. 

  3. Start the opt-out process at https://www.officialusa.com/opt-out/

    Go to the OfficialUSA.com opt-out page. Enter your email address, the URL you copied before, and your address. Then click “next step.” 

  4. Select your profile and click “remove

    Select your profile from the list and click “remove.” If you have multiple records on the website, you’ll have to repeat the process to remove each one individually. 

5. Continue your data removal journey

That’s really all it takes to get your data off OfficialUSA.com. They should remove your profile right away, which you can check by going back to view the record (which should now come up with an error message). 

Don’t let your guard down just yet, though. While the site may have taken down your personal profile now, there’s no guarantee that it won’t list your data again. Most data brokers update and replenish their databases regularly. Unfortunately, this means that your personal information might end up on the site again and again

Data privacy requires ongoing effort. We recommend you return to OfficialUSA.com from time to time and restart the opt-out process if your record shows up again. You should also check other sites for your data. The average American has their data exposed on dozens of data broker websites
