With millions of people visiting their website every week, Whitepages is by far the biggest people search site in the industry. Removing yourself from Whitepages should be the first step in any DIY opt-out attempt.
1. Go to whitepages.com and find the record(s) that contain your personal information. To do this, simply search your name on their website. Keep in mind that you will need the URL from the record pages to process your optout request.
2. Once you’ve searched yourself, find the records you believe are yours and click “View Details”. Make sure you don’t click the records that say “View Full Report” as this will not direct you to the correct page.
3. Verify that the information on this page is you and copy the page URL.
4. Next, head to Whitepages optout page and paste the URL from the last step. Click "Next".
5. Confirm the information and click "Remove Me".
6. Provide your reason for removing your data and click "Next" once you are done.
7. Enter your phone number and check the box. Then click "Call now to verify".
8. You will then be sent to a page with a 4-digit confirmation code, and you will receive a phone call an automated phone call from Whitepages. Follow the instructions on the phone call by entering the 4-digit code into your phone's keypad during the call. You should then be told your opt out process is complete.
It is possible that your information could find itself on Whitepages.com even after you optout. If you are concerned about this we recommend monitoring their website monthly or subscribing to an automatic optout service.
This optout process should take you around 10-20 minutes.
Unless stated otherwise, your information should be removed from Whitepages in roughly 2-4 business days.
