Personal Information Online

If you are living in Florida and concerned about your private information being online then read this article.


The Social Security numbers, driver's license information and bank account details belonging to potentially millions of current and former residents of Florida are available to anyone on the Internet because sensitive information has not been redacted from public records being posted on county Web sites.

Although questions about the availability of personal data online initially focused on Broward County, an official there stressed today that all counties in Florida are subject to the same state law. A spot check of other county Web sites today confirmed that sensitive data is easily available through public property records.


A statue to take all citizen private information offline takes effect in 2007. The problem is counties photocopied old records without taking off indiviuals personal information. You can get this information removed by contacting the county you reside in. Just be patient and persistent.
