I love the internet. There is so much information available at my fingertips. What is scary is that there is so much information about me and my family also on-line.
Have you heard of Spokeo? They take the information from the Rewards cards you apply for, mortgages (public records) and even those warranty cards you fill out and compile it in ONE place. Yep, if you go to Spokeo, and input your name, you will probably be shocked at what people can see about you. Granted, not all you see is true, but I don’t like that people can find out so much about me (and my family) with the click of a mouse.
What you can do is remove yourself from this site. Just click on Privacy(at the very bottom of the screen in small print). Copy the URL (i.e. address information in your address bar) and paste it. Fill out the rest of the form and follow the email prompt you receive. Now, you will need to do this every 3 – 6 months. But, at least there is ONE more way to keep your personal information private.
