How to delete your WhitePages account

You cannot delete your account.

From their customer support pages:

"When you sign up for an account with WhitePages, it is for the purpose of managing your information. The only requirement to have an account is a valid email address. This will not be distributed with anyone and will not be used for marketing or advertising purposes.

In addition to using it to log into your WhitePages account, we can also use this as a way to contact and inform you of any important changes or announcements regarding your personal information.

Because we understand how important it is for our customers to manage their information, we strongly recommend you keep your email on file. While we cannot delete your account completely, we can disable it by your request. However, if you choose to disable it, we cannot guarantee that your information will not appear on WhitePages in the future."

These WhitePages are definitely blacklisted ;)

TIP anonymize your account

Because an account at WhitePages cannot be deleted, we suggest to make your data useless.

Be logged in on the site, then go to Profile Settings (Or Options, etc.). In all fields with personal data (such as name, address, city), fill in AccountKiller, if possible. If you can only choose from several options, change the value. If possible, use a homepage/URL field or long text field (such as Description) and put this line in it: This may incite webmasters to add an account deletion option.

TIP good to know

Publicly visible text/images often aren't properly deleted even when you succeed in deleting an account. Try editing or deleting them manually before deleting the account itself. If you're unsure what happens to your tracks: this can be found mostly in the Terms of Service/Privacy Policy; otherwise you can always contact WhitePages and ask personally. By the way, deletion requests don't necessarily mean your data will actually be deleted (e.g. due to legal obligations).

If you can't find any contact info and still wish to ask something, for example a question about what exactly is deleted, about data retention, etc., you may contact the domain owners using this info.

TIP Remove third-party logins

If you signed up for WhitePages using a third-party login such as Facebook or Twitter, you probably want to revoke all access from WhitePages. Click the icon below to find out how.
