The “Family Tree Now” Website Knows A Lot About You And It’s Creepy As Hell

A couple of weeks ago I saw a segment on the NBC Today Show about a website called Family Tree Now. I’d never heard of it. But it knew a lot about me.

Family Tree Now is a genealogy website that can be used to lookup almost anyone’s personal information. Addresses, family members, and known associates are free for anyone to find.

Check it out for yourself here. If you’re surprised at what you see you’ll most likely want to opt-out like I did.

Here’s how. Patrick Allen, writing for Lifehacker, offered up information on how to opt-out from Family Tree Now, Whitepages, Spokeo, and other popular free people search engines just like it. You’ll find his article here.
