    Type in your email address, read and agree to the terms of use and privacy policy (if you do, in fact, agree), and click “continue.”

  3. Go to your inbox and check for a verification email from PeopleConnect.

    Click on “verify email” in the body of the email.

    CAUTION: It’s not clear what PeopleConnect intends to do with your email once you’ve verified it, but the risk of having your personal information up on PeopleConnect, Intelius, and ZabaSearch is greater.

  4. Enter more of your personal details to find your record

    step 5 of AnyWho opr out process

    You’ll be taken back to the PeopleConnect website and asked to enter your date of birth. Enter it, read and check the declaration, and click “continue.”

  5. Enter your full name, check “this is my legal name”, and click on “continue.”

    step 6 of AnyWho opr out process

    step 8 of AnyWho opr out process

    You can now use the email address you confirmed in Step 2 to verify your suppression request. If you think that sounds like a convenient way for data brokers to get more of your personal information, you might be right.

    Choose a verification method and click on “request verification code.”

    On the next screen, enter the code you received via SMS or email and you’re done.

7. Continue your data removal journey

Your personal info should be gone from ZabaSearch within seven days of you completing the PeopleConnect suppression process. But don’t stop there! You’ve seen how interconnected these data brokers can be.

Intelius and PeopleConnect stand behind a few other data broker sites, including People Finder, but all these data brokers are just the tip of the iceberg. There are an estimated 4,000 data brokers operating worldwide. Hundreds of them could be buying, selling, and sharing your personal information right now.

Incogni’s researchers estimate that it’d take you 304 hours to opt out of all the data broker sites that have your personal information. That’s after you find them and not including the follow-up work it takes to keep your data out of their hands.

Alternatively, let our automated data removal service do all the work for you. Incogni will track down your personal information online, send dozens of opt-out requests at a time, and follow up with data brokers to keep your data private.

FAQ

What is ZabaSearch?

Zabasearch is a free people search directory that provides names, addresses, age, and partial phone numbers of millions of Americans. Since the acquisition by Intelius, Zabasearch redirects requests for more detailed personal information to its parent site.

What does Zabasearch disclose?

Although ZabaSearch won’t disclose your info for free, its search results are packed full of links to profiles to Intelius. Anyone can set up a paid account with Intelius to access much more of your information.

The Intelius people search and background check services linked to on ZabaSearch can include your:
– Phone numbers
– Email addresses
– Location information
– Court records
– Criminal records
– Misdemeanors
– Warrants
– Traffic offenses
– Concealed carry permits
– Property records
– Evictions
– Foreclosures
– Tax liens
– Bankruptcies
– Financial assets
– Family members & associates
– Online relationships
– Social media profiles
– Dating profiles
– Online activity
– Associated websites & blogs
– Education & employment history
– Photos

Having this much of your personal data so easily accessible puts you at greater risk of everything from nuisance calls, spam email, and junk mail to targeted scams, harassment, and identity theft.
We recommend getting your data off all other sites and search engines like Intelius and ZabaSearch to protect your privacy. If one data broker has your private information, they all might as well, given how much sharing, trading, and backroom selling goes on.

How long will it take to opt out of ZabaSearch / Intelius?

It shouldn’t take you more than 10 minutes to submit an opt-out request to Intelius in order to opt out of ZabaSearch.

When will Intelius delete my information from ZabaSearch?

ZabaSearch promises your information will be deleted from its search results within seven days of Intelius receiving your opt-out request. Clear your browser cache and search for yourself on ZabaSearch a week or more after opting out. If your listing is still there, contact customer support at custserv@intelius.com or call them on (888) 245-1655.

How does ZabaSearch get my data?

ZabaSearch states that all the information it shares comes from public records, including court records, county records, and state records. Intelius, the data broker that “powers” ZabaSearch’s results, also draws on unnamed, private databases that may well include information from data breaches.

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

Yes, ZabaSearch can add your information again even after you’ve successfully opted out. This is a big issue with most data brokers, even those that use suppression lists.

Listings reappear when newly scraped or purchased private info isn’t matched to an opted-out profile. When this happens depends on how often the given data broker updates its databases. Changes to personal details like your name can increase the chances of your listing respawning.

Is ZabaSearch still free?
