  34. Preface
  35.  
  36. The Master Opt-Out List (Now on referenced as the Moo) is a list of websites that track or sell your information and offers a free, albeit sometimes difficult, form of opting out of their databases. Some will simply ask for a printed or written letter while others demand proof of identity VIA the scanning of a driver’s license or your State ID.
  37.  
  38. Please read each site’s privacy policy and opt-out policy before continuing forward. You also will need to search and find where exactly your information is listed. It’ll take upwards to a year for Google, among other search engines, to stop showing results for your information once you’ve opted out.
  39.  
  40. Remember: Online Opt-Outs are listed on the Paranoid’s Bible namesake PDF!

  790. Afterword
  791.  
  792. Before you do any of the opt-outs listed here, go to the online opt-outs listed in the Paranoid’s Bible namesake PDF first. The online opt-outs, once completed, take anywhere from a month to a year to be fully removed from Google and other search engines. Besides opting out of the database for each site, you’ll notice other sites will have you removed from their databases, too.
  793.  
  794. Please be aware, though, this doesn’t hinder the government in any significant way or hurts your chances of getting a job. This only prevents civilians from doxing you or attacking you offline. Another thing to note is that legitimate businesses go through government sponsored and/or maintained databases to do background checks.
  795.  
  796. Note: As of this date, each of these sites and their opt-outs should work, however these sites (to keep people from opting out) tend to change either their opt-outs or their websites. If something doesn’t work or has changed, send the Paranoid’s Bible team a message on our blog!
