Spy Dialer Opt Out & Remove Your Info
Maybe you’ve received a missed call from an unknown caller and called back only to be told you’ve been “spy dialed.” Maybe you just don’t want anyone with your phone number to learn your name, or vice versa. The good news is that the Spy Dialer opt-out process is particularly quick and easy.
It shouldn’t take you more than 5 minutes to submit an opt-out request and your data will be removed immediately. Your details might reappear on the Spy Dialer website after you’ve had them removed, though. We recommend repeating the opt-out process regularly to make sure they stay off.

Step-by-step Spy Dialer opt-out guide
Total Time: 5 minutes
Start the online opt-out process on Spy Dialer at https://www.spydialer.com/consumers
Go to the opt-out page and click “start.”
Select your state, solve the CAPTCHA, and click “CONTINUE”
Choose your state from the dropdown menu and confirm that you’re not a robot by completing the CAPTCHA. Click “continue.”
Continue past the privacy law notice. Click on “got it, continue.”
What you see on this screen will depend on the state you selected. Most states will return the “this state has no applicable data privacy law” message. The data removal procedure will work regardless. Click on “got it, continue.”
Add the data you want to opt out, click on “opt-out my info”, and complete the process
If you live outside of California, you’ll have to add the information you want to be removed from the Spy Dialer databases.
TIP: We recommend not adding anything they don’t already have. So open a new tab and search for yourself in the Spy Dialer search bar. Opt out only the personal information that shows up in the results.
Once you’re done, click on “opt-out my info.” Your name and landline phone number should be enough to make the Spy Dialer reverse phone number lookup service unusable for anyone trying to bring up your listing.
5. You’ve taken the first step, now keep going!
Not only is Spy Dialer particularly easy to opt out of, it also displays relatively little information on you. There are hundreds of other data brokers operating in the US and most of them include a lot more of your personal information in their reports.
Other data brokers may have your date of birth, cell phone numbers, social media profiles, political affiliations, arrest records, court records, bankruptcy filings, health conditions, and even your social security number. That’s more than enough information for scammers, stalkers, and identity thieves to work with.

What is Spy Dialer?
Spy Dialer is a reverse phone lookup service that allows users to find the full name, email address, and partial physical address of virtually anyone in the US using just their phone number. Its results are unaffected by the Do Not Call Registry and it doesn’t matter if a number is listed or not.
Spy Dialer also offers a Voicemail Lookup service that allows users to anonymously listen to outgoing voicemail greetings, which often contain valuable information like the owner’s full name.
All of these services are offered by Spy Dialer free of charge and without the need to register an account. This means that absolutely anyone who knows your name, number, email, or address can do a search on you, completely anonymously. Having your personal information so easily accessible puts you at greater risk of harassment, stalking, scams, and phishing attacks.
How long does it take to opt out of Spy Dialer?
The whole Spy Dialer opt-out process should take you less than 5 minutes to complete.
When will Spy Dialer delete my information?
Spy Dialer should delete your information as soon as you complete the opt-out procedure. You can check this by searching for yourself as soon as you’re done.
How does Spy Dialer get my data?
Spy Dialer gets your data by scraping online public records, including homeownership records. It displays only publicly available information, but it’s information that wouldn’t otherwise be found in one place or be so easily searchable.
Can Spy Dialer add my information again, even after I successfully opt out?
Yes, Spy Dialer may well add your information again after you opt out. This is a problem with most data brokers. They frequently update their databases with freshly scraped data and sometimes fail to match incoming data to an already opted-out profile.
One way to deal with this is to periodically come back to the site and search for yourself. As soon as you find a new listing under your name, simply redo the opt-out procedure. Or subscribe to Incogni: we’ll do regular sweeps of all the major data brokers to make sure your personal information stays off the market.
Does Spy Dialer have the right to use my data?
Yes, Spy Dialer itself accurately describes what it does as “sneaky… but legal.” However, some states have laws protecting your data privacy rights, meaning that companies like Spy Dialer have to remove your data when asked to do so. The Spy Dialer opt-out procedure works regardless of whether you live in a state that has such laws on the books.
