Say you are moving, your next landlord may want a glimpse into your past and it is only one click away. Make sure you know what is online about you so you never walk into an interview blind again.
Are these sites accurate?
Accurate? Not so much. Websites like Pipl.com are limited to the amount of information that a person puts online. If you are not on social media or if you are the 1% of the population without a cell phone your information may be skewed or nonexistent.
Pipl, directly informs their site visitors that they do NOT analyze, verify or otherwise examine the data they collect. Pipl will update any incorrect parts, but it is up to you to find it first.

How can I protect my personal information?
Pipl.com does not require an opt-in to gather your information. There are some measures you will need to take yourself. You would need to remove yourself from all the social media accounts that you control. LinkedIn is a large source for how Pipl obtains information, this can be frustrating because a lot of people use LinkedIn for their career and cannot simply delete their profile. Here are some steps you can take to minimize your risk online.
What you can do
Remove as much social media as you can yourself (Facebook, Twitter, etc.). The less personal information you have online about yourself the better. Just delete it. Another tip is to use the privacy features to your benefit. Many Facebook users do not fully understand how much of their personal information is public until something bad happens. Catch it first, do not wait until identity theft happens to you. Also, remove your photos and name from family/friends accounts these can transcend onto your background report if you are tagged by name.
