Reuniting Veterans No Issue at all!! Awesome Website

I think that Familytreenow is an awesome Site. I volunteer reuniting Military Veterans and this Site has helped with my Search tremendously and we have a bunch of Veterans that have finally been reunited after 40 or 50 years. If a person does not want to be in any kind of Data Base, they need to refrain from any kind of Social Media. Familytreenow has not done anything wrong. There is Ancestry that has far more Info on everyone then what you can Imagine and it cost quite a bit of Money to be a Member. Why is everyone bashing down Familytree ? I don't understand!! If I have someones Name and they have been on the Internet before searching for someone or something, I will be able to find them with little Effort just because they entered Cyberspace at their own free will.

Please be advised that there are people listed on familytreenow site that are in their 80s and 90s who never had access to social media so you would have us believe they gave permission to post their personal info? I was on their website and have """"no social media accounts"""" explain please! Funny you can't contact them

My older family members do not even know how to use a computer and never have used one, yet their information is still on there. There was information displayed on our family that there is no way anyone else could have known, not anyone in Ancestry trees or anything.

They must be getting them from public records. Yes, certain records can be made available to the public, but if they dig for it, and or pay for it, or higher a private investigator. However, this website makes it easier for them, so that if they otherwise might not have wanted to go through the trouble of digging, or going to the city to obtain the records or have them mailed to them, this way they don't have to. Women in my family have have trouble before with stalkers, and this makes it easier for them and it also makes it easier for identity thieves, because they can find out a person's mother's maiden name quite easily, and added to other online records such as voting records, and their address.

Another reason why my family doesn't vote, because they put your name and address online, and your party, and it is no one's business. There is really no need for this display of personal information. If there really is such an option to opt out, we should have known it in advance, before putting it out there, so that it would never have been displayed, not wait until after to have the news announce what they have done. If you have ever been stalked, perhaps you would understand.

Yes, if you try hard enough and hire a private investigator, you can find out any information you want. A lot of stalkers, however are mentally ill and live on a tiny check and they don't have the money to hire a p.i. and might be too lazy to go through the trouble of digging for info for free.

This website makes it easy for them to go over the edge and go after anyone they want, or anyone they're angry with in their unstable mind. They need to make things harder for stalkers, not easier.

This site allows the illegal posting of photos of minors, without parental consent AND, dangerously, associates the photos with the children's full names & addresses. It makes all of this available to the public at large, including would-be predators.

Hi, I bet I'm not the only one who has been frustrated with this company. I was appalled at the details on the site that endanger my family and me because I'm a pen pal of the incarcerated. Of course, I use a PO Box for that, but thanks to this site , my home address...

I also had a problem with the "robot" box not showing up. I tried another browser, "Edge" and it worked with this one. I think that my normal browser, "Firefox", is tightened down more than Edge for security reasons.

Personal Information freely accessible

It is completely irresponsible to have my name, date of birth as well as my family members, and addresses freely accessible to anyone who searches. There is no registration process to access the info, so there is absolutely no way to track who has accessed it! Not only is this a safety issue, it opens us all to identity theft! SHUT IT DOWN!!!! There is absolutely no was to limit the access. It is an invasion of my privacy as well as my family members. Now I know how the last scamming calls I was getting started calling my kids, when I blocked their number! This is NOT a legit service!

Familytreenow.com

After seeing my addresses and addresses of relatives revealed, I tried to opt out. When I clicked to begin the opt out process in order to wipe the slate clean, an instruction appeared telling me to click the "I am not a robot" box at the bottom of the page. There was no box and therefore I was unable to continue with the process. When I looked to see if I could get help from the company, no phone number was provided. Instead the page, identified as unsecure by firefox, required me to fill out personal information, but also advised that this form of request had overloaded the company's ability to provide service in a timely manner. I find this company- in its gross negligence of providing address details to the world at large, coupled with an opt out policy that is bogus -non-functional- borders on criminality. The company should be shut down and all its data erased.

Familytreenow - Website Review

This website knowingly places people at risk of harm and identity theft (a reasonable person in their position should/would know). The careless disregard in which this website operates is beyond words. There is simply no legitimate reason a person would create such a website. Such reckless and knowing conduct should result in a lawsuit to shut this website down. If you have been the victim of identity theft, was this website somehow involved? Who knows. This is a very dangerous website.

I was in the jury for the trial of a person in an identity theft ring. Being exposed to their methods alarmed me and I got a locking mailbox.

Privacy protection may be a losing battle with sophisticated thieves, but this site makes the job of common criminals much easier (I won't divulge details here to avoid giving somebody some ideas). But opt out as soon as you can and alert relatives to the threat.

The site should be shut down.

any chance you can share the conversation with your lawyer? This website is total violation of our privacy and I'm wondering what type of action we can take against them. There is no reason anyone needs the info on this site.

Ckick the privacy link and scrool down, there is a link to begin the opt out process there. This site is a huge privacy issue.

There is no consent from the subject to display data to the public.

Why do i have to post a min. of 50 words to post a comment?!?!
