What is Radaris?
Radaris is a database hosting contact information and public records; use it to find relatives, old friends, colleagues, and neighbors or run background checks and phone number searches. After the briefest of searches, anyone can purchase access to "public" information about their target. The consumer details that Radaris houses are not generated by them but stripped from the internet or purchased from elsewhere. Radaris' database receives parceled information and overlays it with other known details to create aggregate, though presumptive, consumer profiles. They differ from other people search websites by allowing discoveries of online mentions, social media accounts, and public internet activity.
How Do I Remove Information From Radaris?
There are some requirements to opt out of Radaris, but they change depending on the avenue of request. Part of the reason there are different requirements comes from Radaris' compliance with state regulations. For example, California's CCPA regulations require companies to provide data privacy solutions for Cali residents. Subsequently, Radaris has a California-specific form, which requires a "profile URL".
Profile URLs are the particular internet page where an aggregate report is located. Consumers can quickly recover these from Radaris in the process outlined below. California residents and consumers opting out over email need a profile URL; without it, Radaris may reject the requests due to lack of "applicable information".
Alternatively, those consumers outside of California and not emailing have another avenue. The general population form does not require a profile URL; it requires account creation. Consumers must email their opt out request to the Radaris privacy team to avoid creating an account. Those who want to continue with the general population opt out form are encouraged to utilize an email account mask or alternative email.
Where to Start Your Radaris Opt-Out
The guide below offers step-by-step instructions for each opt out path. Those who do not live in California and want to avoid creating an account should email their request. At the same time, Californians can fill out a quick online form; while US residents outside California have a longer online form that requires an applicable account.
Radaris features a live representative support line that is contactable at 1-(855)-723-2747. The live hours run from Monday to Friday, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, and Saturday, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm ET. Calling outside these hours results in a rolled phone response and a message machine. Live representatives can assist in removing multiple records, records involving minors, and criminal records with expungement orders.
The Complete Guide to Opting-Out of Radaris
How to Obtain a Radaris Profile URL (Email and California Residents)
Consumers who are California residents or emailing their opt out request must first find their respective profile URL. After copying the URL to the cursor clipboard, ensure the URL is also saved in an accessible document. Although most instances of opt out are without issue, those who record important information are steps ahead in judiciary arenas.
Obtaining a profile URL begins with opening Radaris.com in a new tab. Once opened, select a search type and enter the requested information. For this guide, we entered all the requested details. After entering the requested information, click the "search" icon (magnifying glass) to the right.
Locate the correct profile associated with your information. Some of the proposed information may be wrong, resulting from public information which may be incorrectly attributed or wrongly entered. Ignore any "Sponsored" results wrapped in a light blue pinstripe, this will redirect the user to TruthFinder, Radaris' patron.
After the correct record is located, right-click the largest blue name to the right or the "View Profile" button (below). Then select "Copy link address", or its equivalent, to copy the link to your cursor clipboard. That's all it takes to obtain a profile URL from Radaris; paste it into the California quick form or your request email before saving it to a referenceable document.

Radaris hosts a nifty "How To" page about the opt out method for non-California residents. The path is somewhat long, though it is all automated.
