Last week, we talked about how to claim your listing. Today we’ll discuss how to edit your listing so that you’re putting the information you want out there to the world. The 4 key areas to edit for any Whitepages profile are the name, age, phone number and address.
Once you have claimed your information and successfully created a profile, you will be directed to your Whitepages profile main page. This page shows all the information within your profile and allows you to edit any of the 4 key areas. Let’s dive in to each area one at a time:
To edit your name you will need to enter the area of your profile known as the “About You” section. By clicking on this section, you will be allowed to edit both your name and age on Whitepages. If you wish to edit the spelling of your name, this is the place to do so. All you need to do is enter your name as it should be, and hit submit.
The age edit option will also be within the “About You” section of your profile. As it was with the name, you can edit your age by simply putting in the correct birthday and clicking submit.
3. Phone Number
To edit your phone number you must go to the section of your profile listed as “Phone Numbers.” Within this section you can choose to hide or show the verified number you used to create your profile.
Maybe your verified number is your cell phone and you wish to be contacted on your home phone. This section also allows you to add more numbers should you choose to do so. Under the “Add a new number” heading, you can choose to enter a new phone type and number. This new number will be verified by either a text or phone call to the number added. This lets you decide which numbers you want the world to know.
The address edit option can be found within the “Addresses” section of your profile. Within this section you can select your address and choose to show or hide it from the public. You may also choose to show or hide previous addresses that you claimed when you created your profile.
You now know how to edit your Whitepages profile and show the world who you are! Go log in and try it out.
