Listings on data broker sites have a tendency to reappear over time, so you’ll need to check back with PrivateRecords every now and then to make sure yours hasn’t respawned on the site.
Then there’s the fact that PrivateRecords is just the tip of the data broker iceberg. There are hundreds of data brokers operating from within the States alone. If you’re serious about taking back control over your private data, you’ll need to opt out of any and all data brokers that have it. Because if one data broker has your information, others likely do as well.
Search for yourself online to find all the companies that have public-facing records on you. Do some research into data brokers that operate in your area to narrow down the list of companies that are sharing and selling your data behind the scenes.

PrivateRecords opt-out video guide
What is PrivateRecords?
PrivateRecords is a people search site that specializes in background checks, even though it’s not FCRA compliant. It draws upon 12+ billion records from thousands of sources.
A $1 background report can include the following personal data:
– Sex offender status
– Arrest and court records
– Marital status
– Social media and dating profiles
– Address history
– Contact information
That’s a lot of sensitive information for a dollar. It’s like a convenient starter kit for anyone who bears ill will towards you, has an unhealthy obsession, or is just out to make a quick buck at your expense.
It’s the quick and easy availability of this kind of data that puts you at greater risk of experiencing discrimination, harassment, and crime.
From nuisance calls to stalking, fake sweepstakes to identity theft—allowing yourself to be put out there like this only stacks the odds against you.
Follow our guide below to get your data off www.privaterecords.net. See our other guides to do the same for some of the largest data brokers in the industry.
Or sign up to Incogni and let our algorithms find who has your data. Our automated data removal service will send out and deal with dozens of opt-out requests at a time.
How long does it take to opt out of PrivateRecords?
The opt-out process for PrivateRecords shouldn’t take you more than 10 minutes to complete.
When will PrivateRecords delete my information?
PrivateRecords should delete your information as soon as you click on the opt-out link they send to the email address you provide in the online opt-out form.
Clear your browser’s cache and search for yourself on www.privaterecords.net after you’ve clicked on the confirmation link. Contact PrivateRecords using the contact form if your record continues to appear in the search results.
How does PrivateRecords get my information?
PrivateRecords claims to get your information by searching over 12 billion public records spread across thousands of sources. Public records are either already available to the public or can be obtained through Freedom of Information Act (FoIA) requests.
It’s by putting all this information together and making it easily accessible that data brokers like PrivateRecords put you at increased risk of discrimination, harassment, and victimization.
Can PrivateRecords add my information again, even after they approve my opt-out request?
Yes, PrivateRecords may add your information again even after you successfully opt out. Data brokers like PrivateRecords frequently scrape thousands of sources for personal information that they use to piece together profiles on individuals like you.
If incoming data isn’t properly attributed to an opted-out profile, then a new profile is created and made accessible. We recommend returning regularly to sites like www.privaterecords.net to check if your profile hasn’t reappeared. Simply repeat the opt-out process on your new profile as soon as it shows up on the site.
Incogni’s automated data removal service performs regular sweeps of data brokers to keep your data out of their databases.
