How do I completely remove my personal information from GetContact?

GetContact is a convenient service that lets you find out who is calling you. With its help, you can also “punch” the number and find out about its owner certain details (for example, his place of work, field of activity and even an assessment of his decency).

GetContact works very cleverly – it scans contacts from the phone book and binds to the phone numbers how people wrote down certain contacts. This is not always only a first and last name, because some people add additional information about a person and can even give him a description. GetContact dumps all of this data and makes it public.

If you have enemies, they can add you to their contact list with an offensive description. And if you are engaged in secret activities, this can also leak and become known to anyone, if someone from your acquaintances indicated your place of work in their phone book. In addition, you could have gotten a number that once belonged to another person, and the information in GetContact will be simply inaccurate.

As you can see, there can be many reasons for deleting from GetContact, but simply deleting the application will not help, since information about you will still remain in the service and others will see it. GetContact allows you to hide information about yourself, but this is not so easy.

Open the GetContact app, go to Settings, then to Account Settings, then to Account Management and click Block.



You will be kicked out of your account. You can delete the application, and it is advisable not to log in to it anymore, otherwise information about you will appear in GetContact again.

But that’s not all.

Go to the website GetContact, log in to it by confirming your phone number via Telegram or WhatsApp, and go to the “Profile privacy management” section. You will see the tags specified by other users for your number, as well as the option “Visibility settings”. Disable your visibility in the service.

After that, other people, when trying to find information by your number in GetContact, will see a message stating that you chose to hide it.

And even that is not all. There is one more step left to be faithful. Go to the page GetContact technical support and write a request to delete information about you (in Russian). In about a day, a reply with confirmation of the deletion should come to the mail you indicated.
