Which service removes more addresses, phone numbers, names and AKAs?
Supposing you are moving around a lot. Then you googled your name and discovered that all your addresses are exposed on multiple websites including your current home location. Sure thing you want to remove everything asap.
Some people are mostly concerned that their telephone numbers are placed, others ask to remove alias and AKAs first of all. Let’s see what the companies offer.
OneRep will remove all your previous and current addresses, all variations of your first and last names, your email addresses and telephone numbers. Even the old information that doesn’t relate to you any longer can become vulnerable and affect your safety or reputation. That’s why it’s so important to take control over all data.
What if I want to remove personal records by myself? How can I do this?
Both Safe Shepherd and OneRep have free opt-out instructions. In this case you don’t pay for the subscription and complete removal process by yourself.
Safe Shepherd made the Internet Privacy Handbook and everyone can use it for free. There are quite a lot of instructions, however most of them are not comprehensive and difficult to follow as screenshots are not attached to them. I just clicked on a random opt-out instruction and this is how it looks like in the Privacy Handbook.
For the comparison, this is how the same opt-out instruction looks on OneRep.
OneRep removes everything - Safe Shepherd partially
We have to dig through all pages on Safe Shepherd website in an attempt to find information from which websites Safe Shepherd actually removes data from but we weren’t very successful so far. The only thing we managed to find was only this extract: “...we can’t remove it all, but we can remove a lot”. On the other page it says that they remove from “dozens websites” without being more specific. So you have no idea what exactly you are paying for.
“If a website doesn’t allow us to automatically remove your information, we’ll provide straightforward instructions for how to handle the exposure”. - Safe Shepherd F.A.Q.
So you’ve paid for the service and have to remove private information by yourself, seriously? Let's assume they remove automatically from the most popular sites like Spokeo, Beenverified, Nuwber but these websites do not require sending faxes, speaking with representatives of people-search websites.
This is how it looks like. Look at the screenshot below. Safe Shepherd has found a record of an individual on Epsilon and displayed it on the personal dashboard. Instead of removing these records from the website it simply placed an instruction how a member can opt-out oneself from Epsilon. It doesn’t make any sense because you can find the same instruction in their free Privacy Handbook. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
At OneRep you will receive highly qualified assistance and guaranteed removal from 65 websites. That includes removal from Spokeo, People Finders, Nuwber, Instant CheckMate, Zaba Search and much more. If the algorithm is not able to remove records automatically our team will manually handle it by speaking to representatives of the websites on your behalf, sending faxes, passing through all opt out stages. In addition to this you can provide links to the websites that are not in the list of sites OneRep normally removes from and the team will do its best to delete your records from that websites as well. No extra fees, everything is already included in the price of subscription.
You should be completely protected, not partially.
Which one is more affordable?
We believe that price matters. Some people prefer to think that there is the connection between the price and the quality. Well, guess that the truth is somewhere in the middle.
Have a look at the OneRep & Safe Shepherd comparison chart with provided membership plans and pricing.
As you can see from the table the difference in the cost is not so big. Choosing Safe Shepherd Monthly Subscription you save just $1 and $4,95 paying for Annual Subscription. What is good about Safe Shepherd is that it provides 10-days-free-trial so you can test the service.
However we want to draw your attention to the extract from Safe Shepherd F.A.Q:
“Services also include 1:1 phone consultations that do come at an extra fee of $24.95. However, services also include having the luxury to email us for consultations as well, for NO fee”.
Phone consultation for an extra fee of $24.95.
So every time you need an urgent consultation you have to pay. No, thanks. For the comparison, OneRep provides free phone, email and chat consultations whenever you need. You can leave you number and receive a guarantee callback within a few hours if not immediately as well as an expert assistance to all privacy-related issues.
Let's Sum Up!
We hope this comparison guide was useful to you.
