Bulk Data Removal - How Does it Work?

Your personal data is available all over the internet... We fix that.

What is Bulk Data Removal?

The primary service we offer at DataSeal is our automatic bulk data removal, otherwise known as data opt-out, where we remove your personal information from well-known data brokers and popular people search sites. Data brokers deal in the bulk sale of user data, with large corporations and append sites being their primary customers.

Generally speaking, data brokers sell your data to consumer facing businesses, which is how most people search sites have access to your information. We remove this information for you.

What data do they have?

For those unaware, there are websites called “people search sites” that provide personal data to the public, either for free or for a small price. Unlike most data brokers, people search sites focus on individual sales of personal data, allowing their users to target specific people.

Although each site is different, these sites provide, at a minimum, access to your name, street address, phone number, email address, gender, and age. Premium sites offer even more targeted data, such as occupation, income, health, and any legal troubles associated with your name. These sites work by collecting a single piece of identifying data from the user (i.e. their name), and then matching it to a larger record containing the remaining personal data.

Why data removal is important.

To understand how dangerous these sites can be, consider Whitepages, the most popular people search site today. Whitepages consistently gets millions of visitors daily, and every one of these people could access your personal information if they want to. With your data on sites like Whitepages, you are constantly at risk of identity theft, stalking, and scammers.

DataSeal combats this by automatically removing your data records from people search sites, ensuring that your personal information is protected. These types of websites can upload your data again after it has been removed, so DataSeal repeats this process monthly to ensure your privacy.

Free identity risk report when you get started.

DataSeal aggregates the information found in our opt-out scans along with past data breach history, to give you an initial risk level.

Our goal at DataSeal is to ensure every customer has a "safe" score while using our service.
