Hiding from the Internet

In the third edition of my book Hiding from the Internet, I discuss the various ways to remove your personal information from the internet. This includes social networks, people search Websites, data brokers, public records, and more. This page was originally created to assist the readers of the book. Each link mentioned is on this page, separated by chapter. As links change, I will update them here. This page does not include instruction, and some of the links may seem confusing without the book. I also conduct training sessions on these techniques.
