Removing personal information from the Internet is not that quick if done manually. It requires time, effort and, most importantly, knowledge. Whether you want to delete digital footprints or minimize your online presence, you can always seek professional help.
If you’ve made up your mind to use a privacy service, you want to know that the provider you choose is trustworthy and is not compromising your personal information. The good news is, there are many options for you to choose from. However, with all these great options, come great responsibilities.
“How do I choose the best privacy provider?” “What criteria should I point out?” “Which provider offers free consultations?” “Which one is more affordable?” – these are essential questions to consider before purchasing a privacy package and giving away intimate details of your life.

for your profiles, then makes sure your private information is removed
The reason this is a hard thing to help people with is that their needs and level of technical knowledge vary greatly – there is no perfect service for everyone and some will just flat out to be better for different people.
On the average, the removal process takes the same amount of time for each privacy service because it completely depends on the terms of a particular data broker – a website where your info is exposed. Some companies use auto scan which allows to quickly find and ,obviously, remove records much faster. Yet it’s not the only criteria to pay attention to before making the final decision.
For your convenience, we compared the performance of top 5 privacy service providers: OneRep, DeleteMe, PrivacyDuck, Safe Shepherd and ReputationDefender.
