How is My Personal Information Getting Posted on Websites?
Maybe you’re one of those careful people who doesn’t have many social media accounts. Or it’s possible that you do have some accounts, but you have always set them all to private. You only let certain people follow you and you don’t share your private data with anyone unless you know them well and you’re sure they need it for some important task, like your bank who needs to help you with an issue and needs to verify your address. In this situation, where you’ve been very careful and guarded your data, the problem probably isn’t even on your end. Unfortunately, even if you’ve been careful and vigilant about sharing personal information, such as your home address, phone number, salary information, family names, and other info, it can still end up online. How? All of our data is for sale. Even if you set your social media and other accounts to private, companies sell our personal data to marketing companies and other companies. These companies are very sneaky and very persistent.
The companies online who only exist to gather and store personal information on anyone they can because they make money charging fees for “more information.” They tout themselves as background check companies, but they are far from that. Often, if you go to one of these websites, you will see that some of your information is posted, but not all of it. Anyone looking to get access to more complete information can click the bait links and pay anywhere from $3 to $30 and more to access even more information they have on you. One of the worst of these is MyLife.com. They have been sued multiple times, they well are known for being a scam site and have many complaints listed in the BBB, yet they persist in posting personal information, often it is inaccurate or has outdated information, other times it shows a great amount of detail about your personal data. Another troublesome issue, is that when you go to sites like MyLife and click on your name see what information is exactly out there about you, they show a scanner that is supposedly “gathering all info” about you or whoever you are looking up. What the website is really doing is really doing is setting cookies and attempting to gather information about you from your computer. Many people don’t realize that when they pay a “fee” to see who is “looking for them” or to get background information they are signing up for a “subscription” plan that charges their credit or debit card. They make is very difficult to cancel these subscriptions and offer nothing in return.
