Remove personal information from public search results

If your personal information is posted on a public site, such as a public forum, your info will become searchable within any common search engine.

If you do not want your public information to be found within internet search results, you'll need to make certain that none of your info is publicly available on any of the services that you use on the internet. Many sites will ask you if you'd like your info to be displayed publicly. If you don't hide this info within their services, it may become available in public search.

For more information on how Yahoo handles personal info you've provided to us, review our Privacy Policy.
