Neither of these sites can find me or anyone else I know.
Besides, it's more so one of those things whereas it depends on how much information you "let out" into the public domain. Most of my friends are paranoid about such things - so they only deal with companies that they know do not sell your information to third parties. Nor do they sign up with odd sites.

Your search 'MY NAME' returned no results

....Why am I invisible to the internet..?

Anyway. I probably won't go out of my way to avoid detection.
I just also am not the type to agree to sign in places to say I was there.

There are tons of ways that sacrificing a little privacy can save your life.
Like keeping GPS tracking turned on in your cellular phone.
That way you can be tracked down if something happens to you.

I honestly would tell you anything about myself you wanted to know. But being constantly monitor tracked and recorded is different.. If I pay you money for your service. I don't want you to sell me to advertisers like a product. Also what about tracing cookies why hasn't the internet abandoned them seeing as how insecure they are.

this is why it's pretty odd for me..

i think it might be because my background was pulled for various government jobs i applied for in the past... they could not pull up the social media account i have..

but the other information is pretty much spot on...

i was one of those customers from home depot, community college, etc.. with their system hacked/stolen..

i think i should pull up a free credit report.. let see what else is on my report..

I don't too high of a value on my privacy, because I don't give a fuck what other people know or don't know about me. However, I do place a very high value on individual freedom, and a lack of privacy is very damming on that. If suddenly there is a huge surge in something stupid, like anti-Autism lynch mobs or DEA starts raiding Washington, ya dam well bet I'm keeping that damming stuff private. I want to be able to do whatever I want, whenever I want, as long as I'm not hurting people. If others want to control me, they can rightly fuck off and not bother me.

On the plus side of lack of privacy, whenever I do turn adblock off, I suddenly got ideas for Christmas, Halloween, April Fools, Valentines day, and other holidays. Assuming of course it's actual good invasion of privacy that gives me ad's for Bravely Second, Hyperdimension Neptunia, FF789 on steam, SMT4 Apoc (all games I would have passed over due to me not knowing of their existence) and other niche games and not generic bullshit like Coke, Snickers, McDonalds or general consumer crap that everyone knows about already.

In the early days of the internet people were happy to share stuff on personal web sites. As time when on, though, bad things happened like hacking. Suddenly you get a notice from Pay Pal that you have agreed to send money to someone in Southeast Asia. Or else, you get a notice from Ebay that you have won some auction for junk you have no interest in. Ebay tells you to change your password and you do so. You find out after an hour than someone has changed your new password. The only solution is to drop Ebay all together. Just remember that if you have your cell phone on, the police or other agencies (NSA?) can track you just like a convicted felon who has a GPS tracking bracelet on his/her ankle. Then there's being inundated by ads from places you visited (or their friends) on the internet. It's things like these that make you a believer in privacy.

a lot of your personal information is readily available to the public than you think



to anyone who is pretty confidence about how well they protect their personal information..

try these sites

search by an email you are using or first and last name

see how much information they have on you

i tried it.. and it's pretty creepy they can pull up the names of my relatives as well :/

Well, the entirety of my family is on neither of the sites. My entire family is also government workers too... so these sites are pretty damn bad. I mean, they don't even have a Lieutenant General of the US Army on their site.... I mean, there is only about 500 of them...

So TL;DR, these sites are pretty shitty haha.

Rather subjective belief
Too much liberty is bad

Great comments, but not a whole lot of understanding of how things actually work in real life going on here guys. Mostly rants and opinions. Easy to complain or comment on something in an anime forum, and another to actually get up and make the change you are trying to see, be against, or promote fully.

i checked other emails and names but nothing.came up..

i guess just one particular email via google can pull up all those information for some reason.. this is pretty odd since it's an old email that i rarely use

Well, my family is also incredibly tech savvy. We know how to keep ourselves off the internet. The only profile that you can find if you search my IRL name is my LinkedIn account. Every other "social media" account I was forced to make has no information that could threaten me. Even my CR profile which has pictures of me on it don't worry me.

Now if I said some things about my High School that are easily traceable, then people dug through previous posts of mine, they could possibly find out who I am, but even that would take some serious digging. I don't think there are many people on here willing to throw about 100+ man hours into finding out my irl name.
