How to Remove My Name from Bing and Other Search Engines Fast
Type your name into Bing, but be prepared for what you might find. Do you see your name, or job title? Maybe a tweet from 3 years ago? It can be frustrating to find your personal information on the internet. If you're wondering how to , we're here to help.
It'll take some perseverance, but you can remove your personal information from Bing, and from other search engines yourself. Or, you can rely on the experts at DoNotPay to do it for you.
Why It's So Hard to Get Personal Information Taken Off the Internet?
Before we look at how to remove personal information from Bing, let's discuss how search engines get your name and other details. Like all search engines, Bing collects information about its users, but that's not the reason why your personal information shows up in search results.
Your name and other personal information is on Bing because it is on other websites. When you type your name into the search engine, lots of personal details may appear on the search results page.
Bing is not the source of this information. As a search engine, Bing sources this information from other websites and social media accounts. You will see the links to these sites on Bing's search results page.
So What’s the Solution?
To get your information off of Bing and other search engines, you'll have to go straight to the source. Find where your information is published. First, consider the websites and social media accounts that you may have access to.
Do you own any of these accounts or websites?
- Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and other social media accounts
- A personal website
- A website for your business
If you are the owner of these types of social media accounts or websites, you have two options – and we discuss these in more detail below:
- Delete your personal information from your profile
- Change your privacy settings, revoking search engines' access
If it were just a matter of dealing with your own accounts and websites, it wouldn't be so bad. But that's not usually the case.
Getting your name off Bing and other search engines becomes more of a challenging task when your personal information is published on other websites—ones that you do not own. When this happens, you will need to contact each site to request that they remove your information.
Step-by-Step: How to Remove Your Name and Information from Bing Yourself
Step 1: Take a look at your own social media accounts.
- Delete any that you don't use anymore.
- Edit your personal information on your social profiles.
- Either make your accounts private, or find the privacy setting that says you don't want to allow your information to appear on search engines.
Step 2: Take a look at any websites that you own, whether they are personal or business
- Edit any personal details, such as your home address, so that they don't appear on these sites.
- If you don't want your full name to appear on Bing, or on any search engine, don't use your full first and last name anywhere on the internet. Use only your first name, a nickname, or a pen name.
Step 3: Find the owners of the other websites where your personal information is published
- Try the Contact Us page of each website to find an email address.
- Use the WHOIS directory. Enter a domain name, and click "lookup" to find the owner of a domain. Every website is called a domain, and every owner will be listed in this directory.
Step 4: Contact the owners of each website
- Ask them to remove your name and personal information, and say you do not want it published.
Step 5: Take a look at your Bing privacy settings
- Change your privacy settings to make sure you are not allowing Bing and other search engines to track and collect your personal information.
