How to Remove My Name From the Internet WhitePages

WhitePages provides an online directory that may reveal personal information about yourself. Even if you didn't sign up for an account, you can create an account and remove your information from public listings. You can't delete your main account, but you can't hide your information so that nobody can view it through WhitePages. After creating an account, you can select other profiles, such as a family member, and remove their information as well using the same process.
