Remove My Public Record
Public Data Check allows you to remove your public data from our Background Report search results. Identity verification is required to delete a consumer's public records from our data set.
Once your identity is verified, we will search for the record matching your information and add it to a list of records that will never again appear in our Background Report search results. We will also send you an email confirming your record has been removed. We will do everything in our power to ensure that your information stays out of our search results.
Do I have to be a Public Data Check member to be removed from your search results?
No, you do not have to be a Public Data Check member to be removed from our search results.
Does it cost any money to have my record removed from your search results?
No, it does not cost any money to have your own records removed from Public Data Check.
How long does it take for my records to be removed?
Once you receive an email from us confirming that we have processed your request, your record will be removed the next time our database updates. Most of the time, this should only take 24 hours. We strongly encourage you to verify that your information has been removed. If for some reason it has not please call our support team at 1-800-950-0953.
How do I verify that my records were removed?
Once you have received the email from us confirming that your information has been removed please wait at least 24 hours before checking for your records on our website. In some cases, you may need to "clear your cache/history" to ensure your computer is not storing and recalling information cached prior to the removal. We strongly encourage you to verify that your information has been removed. If for some reason it has not please call our support team at 1-800-950-0953. We will do everything in our power to ensure that your information stays out of our search results. Please be patient with us since we regularly update the Public Data Check Background Report search results from various public resources.
When I remove my name from the Public Data Check database will data about me ever reappear in the Public Data Check search results again?
We regularly update the Public Data Check Background Report search results from various public resources. Although we and our data partners do our best to suppress the records that you request to be removed from appearing in our search results, there may be times when our data partners provide us with new data about you that is different enough from the data you previously had removed – such as different spellings, initials, and/or addresses – that it is not possible to conclusively remove that new data. If you have previously been removed and see a new record about you appear in our Background Report search results, please repeat the removal process and we will remove that record as well.
Can I remove my friends or family members from the Public Data Check search results?
Unfortunately, you are only allowed to remove your own records from our search results. In order to prevent fraud and protect the integrity of the database, each person must make their own request to be removed from the search results.
