When was the last time you "Googled" yourself?

Recommended Posts

I used to Google myself a couple of times a month. A couple of years ago, I removed myself and family members from MyLife, Spokeo, Intellius and several other people search sites.

 

Last week, I checked for the first time in about 6 months and not only did the information returned, but MyLife had incorrect salary information,  my vehicles, relatives, several unknown friends and a reputation score that is based on family and friends. With all of the data privacy issues in this country, this seems so invasive.

 

So, if you haven't done so recently, you might want to Google yourself and if you have any data on these people search sites, start opting out.

If you truly want to go under the radar, just find someone else who has the same name as your own, and then have all your mail forwarded to them.
