Adding Linkedin URL and Company Name to Your Profile For More Comprehensive Removals

You can improve your scan and removal results by adding your Linkedin URL and the name(s) of the company(s) you've worked for in your profile. Adding this information is Optional, but highly recommended for professionals as it helps us locate and remove your profiles from data brokers with greater accuracy and thoroughness. If you add your Linkedin URL and/or company names, we may submit this information to some data brokers for disambiguation and to help them confirm the correct record that should be removed.

Note: Optery does not cover Linkedin for scans or removals and does not make any attempt to connect to your Linkedin account or to opt you out of Linkedin whatsoever. Optery only removes your personal information from the data broker sites we cover listed here and those you submit via Custom Removals. Interactions with Linkedin are beyond the scope of Optery's service.
