If you’re sick and tired of junk mail, one of the easiest things to do is make sure your information is listed as private and not public. When you set up a home or work landline phone, be sure to have the number listed as “private” when setting up the account. You often have to request this from your service provider. Doing so means your phone number and address will not be accessible to the public. Junk mail companies buy lists and will inundate public listings with solicitations for new services, products and more, so make your listing private.
