Recent Kanary Customer Reviews

"Just really like your approach"

I'm so glad I came across your product on the Big Ass Data Broker Opt-Out List. I like your approach to privacy and security. I enjoyed hearing your founder on a podcast last year. I was debating between some of your competitors like Privacy Duck, DeleteMe, Spartacus and OneRep when I came across you. Just really like your approach.

"Being Google-Search-Free"

Thanks SO much for the kind, supportive help. I'm very interested in keeping my personal information as private as legally possible, chiefly due to being a abuse survivor. I prefer to be as 'Google search free' as feasible.

"The support staff is TOP NOTCH"

Having worked in the IT environment for 20 years I was skeptical that any process would be able to remove data from the internet web sites. I was EXTREMELY surprised that I was wrong, and in fact, Kanary works extremely well. The support staff is TOP NOTCH. Various times I submitted URL of Web sites where I had found my information, but at the time The Kanary did not. The staff researched to confirm and IF found the data was removed. I recommend this company to all interested in removing their personal information from the web.

"Used Kanary with good results"

If you've ever searched your name on Google and found your address on sites like Spokeo or Intelius, you can directly request removal from them. If you can afford to pay for a service, members of our staff have used Kanary with good results.

"What a relief"

Thank you for providing this service! What a relief to have someone doing all the work. Thank you so much for your speedy responses.

"Pay a nominal fee monthly and relax for a while"

Thank you Kanary for a paid service that is ongoing. No qualified therapist offers what you do -technically speaking. Piece of mind can be costly these days. One small suggestion... TAG LINE: Pay a nominal fee monthly and relax for a while. Or, hire a damage control firm for $1,000,000 and get the same results - maybe!

"I'm impressed"

I had to write to say I'm impressed with how many listings of me you've caught. You just spotted me in a local govt PDF. There are others sites I've never heard of or seen in 'how to remove yourself' lists, so your service isn't just saving me time on what I could do myself. I was using a competitor before and was disappointed they weren't covering some major sources. They also only scanned once a quarter. You've caught three times as many listings-- including ones they should have--and you're cheaper! Best wishes for your business' success.

"Forget about tedious management"

Submitting removal requests takes hours of tedious management and follow up. Businesses make it difficult on purpose. Kanary provides a solution to this problem and finds and removes information about you online.

"What Are The Pros And Cons Of Using Kanary?"

Pros: You hold the bad guys accountable. You reduce your exposures and risks. You can easily look out for loved ones with Kanary's family options. Cons: You need to share information so Kanary is able to help you. As an active social media or internet user, things might resurface. Kanary doesn't help you prevent your data from leaking - yet.

"How Does Kanary Compare To Competitors Like DeleteMe, Optery, Or OneRep?"

We started Kanary because there was a gap in what data removal companies were doing. Some were even affiliated with data brokers themselves (yuck). We started Kanary to be an independent and member-aligned group with the sole mission of helping you remove your information to protect your privacy, security, and identity. We cover the most sites of any data removal service and offer speedy and extremely helpful member support.

"Why Is My Information Still On Google?"

Kanary focuses on removing your information from the source: data broker websites, social media posts, and people search records. Google copies these sites and checks periodically if the information is still there. Once it's been removed from the source, Google will re-check and remove it from their results. This takes some time and may mean we remove you from the source but it takes Google at least 2-3 weeks to also clear your information.

"Why Are Sites Like This Even Legally Allowed To Exist?"

Before the internet, we had the physical phone book. It was a good way for people in the same community to get in touch with each other. And you could unlist yourself from the phone book if you wanted privacy. Today, our laws haven't evolved to help people de-list themselves from the internet. It's not just a legal problem but a technical one too. How does a government hold a site hosted in another country accountable? Kanary finally solves this problem and helps people reclaim their privacy.
