How is this legal? Have you ever searched yourself and discovered how crazy accurate the info is? They accurately know my income and my net worth. They have a list of my exes (some of whom I never resided with or had any finances with). They even know my religious preferences. I searched someone I am (sorta) dating and MyLife says he is married. He might have been married but he isn't now. Also they have a "reputation score". Also 20 people have checked out my profile!! Who are these people? wth?
Beware. MyLife knows how much money you have and who your exes are.

I went through the incredibly tedious process a few years ago of getting all my information removed from My life. It's still not there. It was a pain in the ass at the time, but absolutely worth it.

R1 = I think I am going to try and get mine removed. The money thing really shocked me because of the accuracy.

I use DeleteMe to remove my information from the web. I highly recommend it.

I should add that it works for My life and dozens of sites like it.

Someone used my email to sign up for MyLife which sent me an email verification, and when I clicked on it I had access to everything. I found the lady who used my email address and told her what had happened, and she ignored me. Anyway, throughout that whole ordeal, I discovered that they apparently make a lot of stuff up. My listing had my name spelled wrong, my address wrong, and an email address that wasn't mine. (Surprise, surprise.) They deleted it without me asking but I kind of wish they'd left it up, because if anyone wanted to dox me, they'd get incorrect info and I'd be just fine with that.

My information is incorrect, but I still want it removed. I’m very private so I would prefer my name not be on a search website.
Thanks, R3, I’m going to do that

Used it to look up an ex of 30 years ago. Nada. He must have died.

This is creepy. It’s been a few years since I last “googled myself.” Back then nothing came up for me, and I was equal parts relieved and proud of that. My father and I share the same name except for different middle names, so a bit of his info did pop up.
Just googled myself after reading this thread and am shocked that four different sites have my residence history as well as a list of phone numbers I’ve used. However the email they list as mine is terribly wrong and obviously inaccurate.
What happened in this time period? How did I suddenly get “lit up” on the radar?? Definitely will look into DeleteMe, thanks for the tip.

OP, are you getting paid for every DLer you send to Mylife? It ain’t free, ya know.

I found this site by accident a while ago and was alarmed at how much information it has on people. Strangely, I am not on it, but my family members are. I removed all of them.

There's far better sites than mylife...
there's still free services available, too. (It once was all free, you know. The commercialization was initially a response to privacy laws...)
(also, there's little point in paying somebody else to delete it or whatever.... when you're just going to connect all your shit to your phone and other backup. Let alone the sheer amount of you on social media that one one person that knows five people that knows fifteen, etc... building a bigger picture that all references back to you. The only thing you can do is go off-the-grid. And even then, you'd still have some info out there... even if you crafted other trails. Of course, you just confuse it all -- easier if you travel a lot and long enough to pick up and use a p.o.box and temp phone (digital and spoofing options out there), I suppose you could fake your own death or change your identity, too. They don't tend to pick up on formal name changes whether you keep your social or not, public notices, etc.... adopting your spouses surname, however, is not the same as a name change. Also, avoid loans, creditors, registering for giveaways, mailing lists, etc.)

Other than my LinkedIn profile, I don't exist, which gives me immense comfort.
I have to wonder if it's because I have no social media accounts.

I have no social media accounts, but DeleteMe found addresses of mine on the internet going back as far as 1990.

R13 = I am OP...NO....I am not with MyLife. I actually stumbled across the page years ago and kind of ignored it because they just had my age and address. I was looking someone up yesterday and came across the site again and was alarmed at how much info they now have. You do not have to pay for the "background report" and I would not recommend doing that--and apparently the FTC agrees.. Like I said repeatedly, I just don't think my income (or yours) should be posted online.

My Life still counts my former Chicago residence as current though I haven't lived there for over 15 years.
So accurate, etc.

MyLife is totally bogus. It's a trap site setup to get people to pay for membership, either to (supposedly) enable people to get in touch with others via the site, or to supposedly be able to edit or remove the information MyLife has posted about them.
That 'information' is a conglomeration of minor details easily scraped off the internet and outright fantasy. No one in their right mind should take it seriously. It, and sites like it, are not intended to be authentic background check sites, and anyone who falls for that is pretty damned gullible.
In my case, the only part they've got right is my name and age. They claim I'm a registered Republican, which is pretty amazing because it's not only wrong, we don't register by party affiliation in my state. They claim I'm a Christian, which I'm not. They claim I'm married, which I'm not. They've also invented my income and assets.
It's even better with my sister. Not only have they got her details wrong, too, best of all they've got her race wrong.
Oh, and our dad: he's been dead for over a half-century. According to MyLife, he's still alive and kicking, and has a very generous income and assets.

I just went on MyLife to search myself and the only options for info all required some type of payment. Not giving them any money.
