Is Your Email Address Public Information?

In certain states, such as Florida, email addresses are considered public records by law and are subject to disclosure by request. All states have their own public record laws that determine what documents and records can be disclosed to other members of the public.

Many online directories, such as Spokeo and EmailFinder.com, offer search services to find someone's email address or to reverse search for a person using an email address. Email search services are typically offered for a fee and paired with other services to obtain information of public record, such as common background checks and social networking profiles.
