Overview of BeenVerified | What Does Background Check Show?
If you have not yet completed your BeenVereified opt-out request there are a few functions that you may want to search first. Before you complete that removal yourself, try searching to see what information is online in reference to your name. Most of the time people will simply click “opt-out” without reviewing their record. We highly recommend that you diligently research your name in order to track and keep records of any other websites that house your private information similar to BeenVerified.
Once you have located a record reference either yourself or another individual you will most likely be prompted with a payment screen in order to view the entire report. Go figure, you have to pay someone else to look at your own information!
It is important that you do an efficient job of searching for yourself. So if you have changed addresses recently there may be an entirely new listing about you. The average individual from our experience has anywhere from 1 to 3 different listings on BeenVerified. An easy way to ensure you find everything would be to create a Google Doc with the exact .pdf or URL from BeenVerified. This way you now have a readily available reference link and you can monitor your opt-out. Save this, check annually just to make sure nothing new has presented itself online.
