October 12, 2020
Return to Learning Center
ZabaSearch.com is one of the nation's most notorious providers of residential listings, telephone numbers, addresses, and other personally identifying data about people. This public information engine makes your data available to the entire country with no registration or other safeguards required. To be totally fair, these people search engines and data brokers sometimes do good things like letting you look into the background information of somebody who is in your life. In some circumstances, this can increase your safety. But the existence of these types of sites also can have negative societal affects like giving identity thieves some big clues about you.
If even Logan Paul can't keep his data safe on here, what chance do you have? Well, just so you know, you can remove your data for free. We're a well-intentioned service and we want you to be safe even if you don't pay us anything. Here's the simple steps. If you don't want to do this for all of sites where your data appears, please simply check out our services where we do it for you.
1. Zabasearch is managed by Intelius, another data broker firm. So go to the Intelius opt-out removal page at intelius.com/optout and search for your profile.
2. Find your account and select it and continue.
3. You must enter your email address to confirm your opt-out request. Input your email address, solve the CAPTCHA, and proceed.
4. You will be directed to a page saying that your opt-out request was received and you'll get a reference code via the confirmed email address you submitted in the previous step.
5. After about 24-72 hours, you will get an email stating that your opt-out request has been fulfilled and your listing has been removed.
6. Please visit Intelius and search and verify your data has been removed and no duplicate profiles have somehow been created.
7. Periodically repeat the previous steps. As their data sources and crawlers can find your data again and there's a network of sites collecting data, there's always a possibility that your data will show up again in the future. Monitoring it for the long-haul is super important if you want to safeguard your privacy.
Managing your personal internet appearances and reputation like this is a time-consuming, but valuable task that can help you get better jobs, avoid identity theft, and reduce your Internet footprint, and your real world risk level. You can always do this yourself of course, but if you don't want to spend the time needed to navigate ZabaSearch and the many other data brokers' confusing forms, monitor them for compliance, and continuously do searches to ensure that your data is off of these sites, you can instead use a reputable privacy service to ensure that your phone number is removed from the Internet permanently. It is always your choice whether or not to do this, but taking care of your Internet safety can help you out immensely in the long run.
