– Opt Out & Deletion Instructions from PrivacyDuck

What Shows

Opting out from might seem like a difficult process - but it's entirely possible and the process is 100% effective. WhitePages Premium came online in early 2016 as an accompaniment to the well-established More to the point, it's the only website owned by WhitePages, LLC that has a different removal process than their other sites (with all other sites, the normal Basic WhitePages Opt Out trickles down to all the other properties, except for this site). The main difference between the Basic and Premium listings is the existence of a pay wall. Your information is freely available on WhitePages Basic, whereas on Premium, only your name (and variations), age, current and prior cities, and relatives names are listed (your exact address and phone number are not, however, this may be purchased for a fee). WhitePages Premium listings often appear as numerous advertisements on the WhitePages Basic site, errantly leading some to believe they still have a Basic WhitePages listing, when in fact, it's only the Premium ad. Further, generic profiles will be created by the Premium's search engine whenever you type a name or a state in - even if there's no match on file. You can tell the difference between a true Premium profile about you and an empty, generic one this way: the real one will have age, multiple cities, and relatives listed; the fake one will only list the exact name and city/state you typed in.

  1. 1. Proceed directly to and search for yourself via First and Last Name and City and State. Hit enter.
  2. 2. The following page will be your results page. Do not click on any of these results, as that will take you to a generic sales page. Rather, locate your results on this page. You may have to scroll down.
  3. 3. Now that you found the listing, you want to record this for removal. Here's how to do it: First, take a screenshot of your listing on this page.

If you only have one listing on WhitePages, you can opt out via email - so go ahead and keep this file on your computer.

If you're emailing your removal request, you'll need to get an image of your edited license uploaded onto your computer. If you're mailing it in, print out the copy of your license.
