  • Find the relevant Premium record or listing. Usually, this is the listing with the blue “View Full Report” button next to it.
  • Right-click (or CTRL + click) the button and select “Copy link address.”
  • Visit the Whitepages support page and select “I need to edit or remove a listing” and fill out the form.
