I wonder why people opt out

So that they can try and remain anonymous and avoid junk mail addressed to them.  There are also many people that don't want to be found following marriage break ups / domestic violence etc.

My understanding of 192 is that it is made up from the telephone numbers and not electoral registers.

If you choose to go ex directory then your number will not be available. You can do this at anytime.

I have just looked myself up on 192.com and the only information on there was from the electoral register (before I opted out in 2002).

We have been ex-directory for years, also opted out from the edited version for many years and yet all of my family appears on 192.com

There is an online form for data removal here https://www.192.com/c01/new-request/

I'm glad to see they have replaced the postal form, which I mentioned, with an online form.

And the 192 information is on FindMyPast as well, all aligned with the Companies House information. So even though I've opted out of the Electoral Roll, I still show up at my address with my husband's companies!

How they can get away with so much information available since GDPR I'm not sure!

So many of us were fed up of the barrage of unsolicited sales phone calls 🙄
