How to delete your personal data from Merinfo

In this step-by-step guide you will learn how you can delete your personal data, such as your phone number, address, and birthday from Merinfo.se. The good news upfront: It´s not that difficult, so let us show you how to go about.

What is Merinfo?

To start with, let´s take a look at their business. The website Merinfo.se provides access to information about businesses and individuals. They gather and present information from various sources and they claim to be the most complete search service on the internet for individuals and businesses, as well as telephone numbers that come directly from the operators themselves. 

At a first glance, it might seem kind of them to offer such a service, but don´t get fooled, as they turn your data into money. We are not sure whether they actually sell your data to third parties. However, with every view of any of their pages, they get revenue from advertisers on their site.

You might think your data was protected by law, but unfortunately, this is not the case here. Merinfo holds a publication certificate, which means that your rights through data protection laws, like GDPR, are being undermined, and hence leaves your data unprotected.

Below you can see Merinfo’s reputation on Trustpilot. At the time of writing this post, there are 16 reviews about Merinfo, and 94% of those reviews are negative. Multiple reviews link Merinfo to scams targeting businesses.
