If you don’t have the time or means to find this type of information yourself, ZabaSearch will provide it for you for a fee.

Privacy concerns

Even though there has been some controversy about this online service, the truth is that ZabaSearch relies only on data that has already been made public and which has already been posted online.

People are still concerned about the information which can be found about them at ZabaSearch, but the search engine is not to blame.

Rather, if you have made your personal data available to any public domain, such as if you have gotten married, divorced, purchased a house or took part in a non-profit organization or in a political campaign, entered sweepstakes, and from marketing records, court records, change of address requests, and others – your information is already out there anyway. Of course, if you have profiles on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and other social media platforms, this information will be displayed too.

ZabaSearch only makes it easier to collect the information and put it together in one search result. It is not to blame for the results produced by the search.

It is an internet search engine, and as such, it doesn’t host or produce any of its own content. Rather, it indexes online websites, databases, and other sources to find the information you are looking for. Remember that these websites, databases, and other online resources are already made available to the public and are completely free.

ZabaSearch will simply save you a lot of time and searching by providing you with instant access to all of the available information in one search.

Can I restrict my personal data from being searchable?

Yes, if you are worried about your privacy or have other concerns about your information being available to the public via ZabaSearch, you should go to its website and choose the ZabaSearch Blocking Options, where you will get further information on the steps you need to take.

This will limit future access to some or all of your personal information, which can be found via the search engine for people.

But keep in mind that even if you restrict ZabaSearch from displaying your personal data, if it is available somewhere online, it is still accessible to those who may be looking for it.

The best way to protect your personal information from identity theft or other dangers is to be reasonable about what you share online and stay safe online.

How to Remove Your Information from ZabaSearch

If ZabaSearch is showing your personal details too and you’re not comfortable with it, then you can block your information from appearing on ZabaSearch by following the steps provided by the ZabaSearch Privacy Policy page.

You will be required to prove and verify your identity by faxing a copy of an identification document, such as an ID card or a driver’s license. If you are sending a copy of your driver’s license, remember to cross out your photo and the number because ZabaSearch only needs the name, date of birth, and address.

Send it to fax number (425) 974-6194.

But remember that if any of your data available in public records is updated or changed, you will once again appear on the results page of the ZabaSearch search engine.

How to protect your personal data online

There are some general rules to follow if you are concerned about other people accessing your personal contact and other information. Here are some of the basic ones to keep in mind to keep your data safe from prying eyes.

  • Be careful about the personal data you share when filling out online forms.
  • Always read the term of service and the privacy policy of an online service before signing up for it.
  • Use a VPN when browsing and using the internet.
  • Don’t share your private details with people online.
  • Don’t share your personal info via means which are not secure.
