This website is displaying your full name, age, current & past addresses in public - Here is how to opt out

A writer named Anna Brittain recently made people aware of a site called FamilyTreeNow, which lets anyone search for someone by name and location for free. The results show family members, their birthdays, their home addresses, your possible associates, and your own current and past addresses. It may seem creepy, but all of this information is already available in various public records. The ease with which it is viewable, however, is a bit unnerving. Fortunately, there is a way to opt out. Watch the video below to learn...


Removing your information from FamilyTreeNow is pretty simple
  • Go to the opt out page and click the “Begin Opt Out Procedure” button.
  • Search for yourself using your name and birth-date, and select your record listing from the results.
  • Verify that it’s actually you and not someone with the same name, then click the big red “Opt Out” button at the top of the page.
If you have multiple listings, repeat the process for each record.
