How to Hide Your Home Address

Information broker websites collect personal information like home addresses from a number of sources, including public records. As long as information remains in the public record, keeping the information off the Internet is virtually impossible. However, many of the websites for these information brokers, such as WhitePages, allow individuals to control their information once it has been acquired. An individual can completely remove the listing from the website or restrict how much information, including home address, is shown on the site.
