Optery makes sure your home address, phone number, email addresses and other private information are removed from the internet. We do this using our automated opt out software to opt you out of the top data brokers that trade in this information and post it online. We cover over 225+ web sites and data brokers, more than any other personal information removal service on the market. Optery prevents identity theft and fraud, reduces the surface area of attack for phishing attempts and spam, and prevents people's private information from showing up in Google search results. Optery's mission is to put consumers in control of their personal data. Anyone can create a free account to receive a personalized Exposure Report summarizing where your information is openly posted and sold online. Optery then provides free tools to remove the profiles on your own self-service, or you can upgrade to a paid plan, and we’ll remove the profiles for you.
