Spokeo is a new site that claims to not be your “grandma’s phonebook.” This is because it pulls a ton of info about you from all over the web into one place. And I mean a ton. More than you might be comfortable with, in fact.
But luckily, it appears you can “remove your Spokeo listing from public searches for free” by following these simple instructions.
Also!: If you visit spokeo.com for any reason, you may want to delete any browser cookies from “spokeo” afterwards. It seems they install a grip of them.
