Manage Your Identity: 3 Steps to Claim Your Listing

The New Year is right around the corner. So in honor of new beginnings, I’m going to get you set up with your very own Whitepages account. There are tons of reasons why it’s smart of have an account. Being searchable on Whitepages helps friends look up your address to send you invitations or get directions to your home—that list could go on for quite some time, but for now, let’s get to the 3 steps for claiming your listing.

1. Find Yourself

Simply go to Whitepages.com and search for your profile using our people, phone or address search.   Select the listing that reflects your personal information by clicking “View Full Profile” and click the “Claim/Edit” button from the menu just below your name and age.

2. Log In

You can create your free Whitepages account by clicking “Join” in the upper right hand corner of the screen, and you have the choice of selecting “Log in with Facebook” to use your Facebook login credentials.

If choosing “Sign Up”, enter your first and last name followed by a valid email address and create the password of your choice.

3. Tell Us It’s You

Upon clicking “Create Account” you will receive an email from Whitepages with the subject of “Verify your email”.  Just access the email inbox and click the “Verify My Email” link provided.

All that is left is to verify your phone number.  If the listing you are claiming has phone numbers attached you can verify any of these.  If no numbers are associated or you do not have access to the visible number on the claimed listing you can add your most convenient phone number and verify this by either a SMS/Text or a phone call.

Choosing the SMS/Text option will send a 4-digit code to your mobile device, which you will then enter into the provided field.

If you choose the Phone Call option, simply answer the incoming call and listen for the 4-digit code.  Enter this into the field provided inside your account and once this is completed the claimed listing should appear inside your account instantly!  If no listing appears or you have another personal listing you wish to add, simply locate the specific listing and click the “Claim/Edit” button.

The idea behind the verification for your email address and phone number is to try and curb malicious use and tampering of information on Whitepages. Having you enter your preferred email address and create a personal password will help ensure that you are the only person with access to how this information appears.  Your verified phone number will appear inside your account and can easily be hidden from public search by selecting “hide” from the Phone Numbers section of your account or selecting “Hide all information…” from within the Privacy section.

You now have complete control over how this information appears on Whitepages.com, and all our affiliated sites!
