Remove Sensitive Information
We mentioned already that you can track down places where your information pops up. This is not always easy to do, but you are able to remove any sensitive issues. By American federal law, any website that publishes your public address or phone number has to remove it if you formally request they do so. Some websites, like the White Pages, will give you the option to do it yourself. However, “sensitive information” is not the same thing as your name. Your name can still be out there.
Yet this is an article about how to vanish from the internet altogether. How can you get the name removed?!? Some will remove it too, but others may need a pay-off sadly. Another issue that might plague some might have to do with the lack of obligation to remove something. For example, the name on this article you’re seeing is “Joe Burgett.” The website ownership group is under no obligation to remove this name nor the article(s) this writer is connected to. Therefore, “that” will be the toughest. To see how tough major websites might be regarding information removal, click here.
