Radaris Opt Out & Data Removal Guide

Our guide will take you through the Radaris opt out process step by step, giving you tips on how to protect your privacy as you go. It should only take you 10 – 15 minutes to remove yourself from Radaris.

Radaris is one of those data brokers that wants you to give up even more of your most sensitive information before it’ll let you opt out. It also makes you jump through a whole bunch of hoops before you can submit your data removal request.The trick is doing so without giving up your real name, email address, or phone number.

Once you’ve removed your information from Radaris, you’ll want to do the same with several other people search sites. Radaris collects its data from these companies so if Radaris has your personal information, so will they. Below, we’ll also go over which other data brokers you’ll have to opt out from to keep your data off Radaris for good.  

Getting your records removed from one or two data brokers is not a big deal. Sending out dozens of removal requests a few times a year to get and keep your private data off the market is a different story. Let Incogni’s automated data removal service do just that on your behalf.

Opt-out process:  10 – 15 minutes

Removal Requirements: Email, Cell phone number

    We recommend you either make your social media profiles private, remove any information you don’t want to share publicly, or delete the accounts you no longer need or use. Radaris collects your data from Facebook and LinkedIn. 

    Follow our guide on how to remove your data from Google’s search results. To remove your data from most other search engines, you’ll have to contact the webmaster of each result that comes up in the search. 

    If your case is more urgent (you’re a victim of identity theft or in physical danger), you should contact the search engine’s customer support, the Federal Trade Commission, and your local law enforcement. 

13) Continue your data removal journey

That might not have taken long, but it wasn’t painless, either. Plus, you had to deal with the fact that Radaris requires you to set up an account and really wants to know your email address and phone number.

But this is just the tip of the iceberg. If you’re serious about taking back control over your personal data, there are two things you need to know: your data can always reappear on data broker sites like Radaris, even after you opt out, and there are hundreds of other data brokers that could have your data.

Searching for your name online will let you pick the low-hanging fruit of people search sites that let their profiles get indexed by search engines. Doing a little research into data brokers that operate in your area will give you some idea of what other companies might have your personal information.

You can then send opt-out requests to both the data brokers you know have your data and the ones who are likely to have it. This means you’ll probably have dozens of opt-out processes to go through—some easier than the Radaris one, many much more difficult.

Or you can subscribe to Incogni’s automated data removal service. We’ll deal with dozens of major data brokers on your behalf, submitting opt-out requests and handling rejection appeals so you don’t have to.

Alternative Radaris opt-out methods

Radaris doesn’t accept removal requests other than through the procedure described above. If you run into any problems while opting out, though, you can contact the data broker directly:

Phone: (855) 723-2747
Email: customer-service@radaris.com
Contact form: https://radaris.com/page/contact

FAQ

What is Radaris?

Radaris is a people search site, it makes money by gathering and monetizing personal data. Unless you opt out, Radaris will collect your personal information from various sources, such as government databases, social media, and official public records, and offer it up for sale.

The “public records search engine” boasts having a repository of 183 million unique names, 224 million phone numbers, and over 110 million properties. What this means for you is that anyone with an account can quickly and easily find private information like your:
– First and last name
– Age
– Phone numbers
– Current mailing address
– Resumes and work experience
– Marriages and divorces
– Death certificates and other public records
– Relatives’ names
– Social media profiles
– Sexual offenses
– Criminal records and mugshots
– Photographs and videos

Having this much of your personal data so easily accessible and fully searchable exposes you to a number of significant risks.

This data can be used to scam, harass or stalk you. Cybercriminals can use information like this to help them steal your identity. At the very least, having your contact details floating around online and trading hands between data brokers can lead to you getting more robocalls and spam emails.
We recommend removing your data from the clutches of each and every data broker that has it to protect your privacy.

How long does it take to opt out of Radaris?

It should take you around 10 – 15 minutes to fill out the Radaris opt-out form and complete the data removal process.

When will Radaris delete my information?

Radaris will change your profile to “private” immediately, meaning that you shouldn’t show up in any people or reverse phone searches on Radaris from the minute you click “make profile private.”

How does Radaris get my data?

Like most data brokers, Radaris crawls and scrapes the internet for public records and organizes what it finds into profiles and individuals. It also draws data from private databases and other data brokers.

Public records that Radaris admits to using include those from district courts, local government, county registries, police reports, criminal records, license registries, deed registries, and local and state phone directories.

These are just some of the data sources Radaris uses:
– LexisNexis
– ChoicePoint
– Rapleaf
– Datalogix
– Epsilon
– Transunion
– Reed Elsevier
– Spokeo
– Intelius
– Acxiom
– Experian
– Equifax
– USPTO
– IMDB
– Amazon
– WhitePages
– USsearch
– Bing
– Classmates
– Google
– PeopleSearch
– PeopleFinders
– PeopleWise
– ZabaSearch
– Facebook
– LinkedIn
– Wink

Use our guides to remove yourself from many of these and other major data brokers. Sign up to Incogni to have us send out, monitor, and follow up on dozens of opt-out requests at a time.

Can Radaris add my information again, even after they approve my opt-out request?

Yes, Radaris can add your information again even after you successfully opt out. This is a big problem with most data brokers. Incoming personal information isn’t always properly matched to your opted-out profile, so a new listing is created under your name.

The chances of this happening increase when you change a key piece of information used by data brokers to identify you, like your name or address. Check back with Radaris and other data brokers every once in a while to make sure your listing hasn’t reappeared after opting out.

Simply repeat the opt-out process to remove yourself from Radaris again each time your profile reappears. One huge advantage of using an automated data removal service like Incogni is that we’ll regularly restart dozens of opt-out procedures at a time to ensure your data stays private.

Does Radaris have the right to use my data?

Yes, Radaris has the legal right to use your data, but only as long as it abides by privacy protection laws like the CCPA, CPA, and CDPA. State laws like this force data brokers to remove your data when asked, if you live in a state with such laws in place.
