Is your current address and phone number listed in online directories? Recently I discovered myself in an online directory that listed my FULL current address (with a handy little “click on the icon and it takes you to an arial map of my house in Google), known relatives and all of my previous addresses from the time I was 18 years old. The enduser only needs to type in your First and Last name, nothing more. They don’t need to register or login, which gives them the ability to search very quickly for who/what they are looking for. There are simple steps to remove your name from FamilyTreeNow Directory (and all the information they are listing!)
I don’t want my FULL current address listed nor do I want the places I’ve lived in the past listed on the internet for all to see. Remember the internet is used by BILLIONS of people, some nice and some not so nice. You can check and see what information is posted on this site about you and your family and have it immediately removed by following these simple instructions.
Remove your name from FamilyTreeNow Directory
Go to: http://www.familytreenow.com/optout Click on the “I’m not a Robot”. In the Search area list as much information about yourself in the fields so you don’t have to sort through hundreds of record.
Once you have found your record(s) click on the “View Details” or Living People Records link. Now you will see all your known relatives and lower on the page it lists all your known addresses and phone numbers. Click on the RED button “Opt Out of This Record”
You are done. Please allow up to 48 hours for your request to be processed. Once it’s processed that record will be removed from all places on the website. Note: If you have multiple records that need to be removed, repeat steps 1-2.
IMPORTANT NOTE: You will need to repeat this FOR EACH RECORD you find about yourself. It’s important to remove your name and personal information from FamilyTreeNow Directory.
