How do you remove mine and my family’s private information?
LEO Web Protect has taken a proactive approach to removing your private information. What we do is unique to the industry of information removal. We do not send letters to any companies via the US Postal Service. Frankly, we do not trust the “guy” in the mailroom reading your private information (and neither should you). We send our letters directly to executives, executive assistants and to some CEO’s email addresses and faxes. LEO Web Protect has built personal relationships with individuals at these companies to assist us and our clients in removing their private information in a timely manner. By doing this, LEO Web Protect has been able to effectively remove our client’s and their families’ private information in sometimes as little as a few hours. Some websites do take longer. LEO Web Protect will monitor and verify your information will be removed in a timely manner.

How do you keep my information off?
After removing your private information from the internet, LEO Web Protect will continue to monitor any additional information listed on the internet regarding your private information. Once (and it will) it reappears, LEO Web Protect will again send out our request to have the information removed immediately.

Why would my information reappear after LEO Web Protect has removed it?
The internet is nothing if anything, “information“. Businesses that traffic and sell information are growing by leaps and bounds. If you buy a new house, refinance your mortgage, buy an extended warranty, registered to vote or even filled out the US Census, your information will be sold. LEO Web Protect cannot stop the ever increasing amount of private information available. What we do is simple; wherever your name and address or your name and your telephone number are connected together, we will remove. LEO Web Protect will verify at least once a month if your information has resurfaced on the internet. Once it does, we will remove again for the life of your account.

Can’t I do this myself?
Absolutely! Be advised, this is not for the timid. Many of the companies offer individuals the right to opt-out their private information off of their own website. If you read these companies websites privacy policies, many state your information will be suppressed not deleted. Within as little as four months, your information can (and will) be reintegrated in many of these websites. You will be forced to send letters numerous times to the same companies to keep it off. Furthermore, you will have to monitor their websites for any additional information on your own. LEO Web Protect will not only do all of this for you and your family, it has numerous accounts with many of these companies to verify their compliance with our request.

Will I know if individuals are looking for me?
LEO Web Protect does not offer this service. We believe if someone is already looking for you, they probably already know where you live. Our job is to make sure individuals (including private detectives and attorneys) not discover your private information from the beginning. By doing this, LEO Web Protect will try to make you and your family safer from people who would do you harm physically and economically.

Will LEO Web Protect ever sell my private information?
Never! LEO Web Protect is owned and operated by Law Enforcement Officers. Not only do we understand the need for privacy, we demand it. Your information will only be sent to companies to assist in its removal, never to add to the existing problem. LEO Web Protect is here to resolve the problem, not to exacerbate it.
