5) Continue your data removal journey

Your record should be removed from Open Public Records within 24 hours. However, if you want to remove your information from the internet, that won’t be enough. There are hundreds of other data brokers that do the same thing.

For example, while searching for your record you might have noticed two purple search bars. The first one leads to BeenVerified, an affiliated information broker. Data brokers form networks that trade and sell your information. So, if one of them has your data, there’s a big chance dozens of others do as well.

To check which of these brokers have your data, simply do a quick search online. First, look up your name. You’ll probably find many people search sites among the results. However many data brokers won’t show up this way. You’ll also have to research which data brokers operate in your area.
