What is Information.com?

Information.com is a major data broker website. 

It is one of the original and oldest data brokers out there and operates primarily as a people, phone number and address lookup directory to provide in-depth information about anyone in their database. It provides users with access to public records and various contact information for individuals.

However, due to privacy concerns, many people prefer to remove their information from data broker sites like this even if they don’t have any negative information like liens against their properties, arrest records, court records or mugshots.

Information.com, like other similar websites, sources its information from public records and other publicly available sources. 

They get their information from public records databases. That means information collected by the government, such as court records, country records, state records, such as the kind of information that becomes public when you buy a new house or file a change-of-address form with the United States Postal Service.

Why you should remove your information from Information.com

Data brokers like Information.com collect and sell personal data, often without your consent. This can lead to an increase in unwanted marketing and inaccurate information about you being available online.

Having personal information about yourself online can put you at greater risk of identity theft, doxxing, stalking and other forms of online and potentially physical harassment.

Data brokers often use unclear language. They suggest that paying for detailed reports can reveal court records, lawsuits, and arrest records. This is true even if you’ve never even gotten something as meaningless as a parking ticket. These sites also sell ads to questionable advertisers. These advertisers might imply you have a legal history, even when you don’t.

Ultimately, it’s about having control over your own information. It’s your right to decide who has access to your details and for what purpose.

Removing your info from data brokers is a way to regain some of that control over your digital footprint and online privacy.

What kind of information is available on Information.com?

Information.com is primarily a people search and reverse phone lookup site but they also provide extensive information about addresses and email addresses. The information they aggregate about people and make available online includes but is not limited to:

  • First Name
  • Middle Name
  • Last Name
  • Previous Names
  • Age
  • Date of Birth
  • Current and Past Addresses
  • Relatives
  • Marital Status
  • Social Media Profiles
  • Online Dating Accounts
  • Educational Background
  • Traffic Violations
  • Sex Offender Status
  • Court Records

How did Information.com get my information?

Sites like Information.com gather their data from a few different sources, usually blending public records with other private data that they purchase.

  • Public records: This can be anything from voter registrations, property deeds, court records, and marriage licenses.
  • Business records: Similar to public records, if you run a business, some of that information is available for anyone to lookup, these sites just bring it all together.
  • Credit Bureaus and Financial Institutions: While they don’t directly share credit history without consent, they can make some basic information available under some circumstances.
  • Telecom Companies: They get lists of subscribers from phone companies to build their databases of phone numbers and addresses.
  • Social Media and Other Online Sources: Publicly available information from social media profiles and other online platforms like LinkedIn can be scraped and aggregated.
  • Third-party Data Brokers: They can buy information from data brokers who specialize in aggregating personal data. 

A lot of this information is what you might not realize you’re giving away when you sign up for things online. That information, depending on how it is collected, can be bought and sold in bulk. This is kind of like a less malicious version of the Facebook-Cambridge Analytica data scandal.
