Format: Paperback
There's valuable information for almost all of us in Michael Bazzell's revised and expanded (2nd edition) of "Hiding from the Internet."

For those with privacy concerns (most of us), who want to make themselves smaller targets on the Internet -- this book tells exactly how to do it.

For investigators, who have legitimate need to use the Internet to investigate the bad guys -- this book is also a superb reference.

Mike Bazzell, a computer crime detective with the Alton (IL) Police Department, assigned to the FBI Cyber Crimes Task Force, reveals scores of web sites that trade in people's private information on the Internet. He describes how to contact them and get them to delete your personal data.

Details like home addresses, occupant and relatives' names, landline and cell telephone numbers, email addresses, Internet usernames, and dates of birth are the sorts of information that can be eliminated -- if you know exactly how and where to find it.

This sort of personal profile information is collected from us constantly through our everyday business interactions, largely for marketing purposes. Bazzell explains exactly where and how this happens. The information collection is ubiquitous and seems unescapable for the average, uninformed consumer. It is compiled into databases by businesses who sell it. Much of it ends up on the Internet where it can be obtained by anyone, often for free or for a nominal price.

To get this information suppressed, you first have to find who's selling it. You do this by investigating yourself -- conducting a thorough search on the Internet for your personal details.
