Protect your online personnel information with Safe Shepherd.

Safe Shepherd Protects Your Social Networks, Keeps Your Data Off of Creepy People Search Engines

Safe Shepherd is a privacy protection service that already scrubs your personal data from creepy people search engines, but the service also now keeps tabs on your social networks like Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Instagram to make sure you’re not oversharing or letting sensitive information slip.

Safe Shepherd still makes sure your personal information is free from “people search” engines and data harvesting companies—the ones that inevitably sell your data to spammers, telemarketers, and anyone else willing to pay up for your name, address, and phone number. If your data is found on one of those networks, they’ll notify you so you can have it removed. Now, the service also makes sure that you’re not giving away that information for free when you post to social networks. They’ll send you alerts if they detect apps or posts on your public profiles that reveal too much about you, like where you live, work, how to contact you, and so on.

Once Safe Shepherd builds a report on you, you can browse where they found the data, review your public posts, and make changes where you need to. The report is free, and you can just type in your Twitter or Facebook username in the search box on the front page to see what they can find about you using nothing else.

To take things a step further and remove your records from services like Spokeo and BeenVerified, you’ll need to sign up for a Premium account ($14/mo). For your money, Safe Shepherd writes the necessary letters, makes the necessary calls, and puts a real person on your case to do the legwork and follow up to make sure it’s done. If you don’t want to pay, they even offer opt-out guides so you can do it yourself. If you have a personal brand to manage, have a legal issue, or need serious help, Safe Shepherd’s VIP service (a whopping $250/mo) puts a privacy lawyer at your fingertips to handle your case.
