Online Opt Outs
The quickest and simplest way to have your information removed from our database and reports is to submit a request via the Intelius Opt-Out online form.
Here's how it works:
- Go to: https://www.intelius.com/optout
- Use the form to search for your name, then select your listing from the list of results.
- Enter your email address.
We'll give you a reference number, and then send you a confirmation email when the removal is complete. Removal from our websites and all affiliates typically takes place within 72 hours.
Search Engines & URLs
Since Intelius does not own or manage search engines like Google or Yahoo, we do not have control over the content of their search results. Usually search results on these sites will update to reflect an opt out after a brief period of time.
URLs (or web addresses) are interactive, and can be manipulated to result in a page with a matching title only. Unlimited combinations of criteria can generate pages in this way. Because of this, we cannot delete or block URLs.
Keep in mind that if you have already completed an opt out successfully, your records have been removed from our website even if a search engine or URL thinks it may have found a match. Instead, no results will be found on our website or search criteria will expand automatically until someone else with similar information (such as a name) is found.
