Why do I need to create an account?

It is important to create an account before editing or removing a listing because it helps us prevent malicious and fraudulent changes to Whitepages information.

We advise you to create an account (instructions above) to help keep your information from being publicly visible. Should you choose to have us remove your listing on your behalf, we advise you to check Whitepages.com periodically (about every two months or so) to ensure the information has not reappeared.

If you are having trouble with the removal process, please let us know with which step you are having trouble. Be sure to include your name, address and phone number – exactly as it appears on our website. You may send us an email by clicking on the Contact tab above.
