NOTE: The INFOJET.org Android webviewer application is only a web site viewer and does not access,gather or retain information from your phone or phone contacts. This application enables you to view the INFOJET.org website without using a web browser. The functions are very basic. Close the application by pressing your settings/tools menu on the bottom of your phone/tablet and press "Exit application" and the webviewer will close. If you proceed to a website outside of the INFOJET.org website, you will still be in the webviewer but out of INFOJET.org so you need to activate your phone's "back" button to get back to INFOJET.org.
As stated: The INFOJET.org Android application works on Android versions 2.2 and above.
After you press the link (ij_app_adrd.apk) and download the app to your phone/tablet, the following standard statements and warnings will likely be displayed by your Android phone prior to you installing the application:
"Do you want to install this application?"
"Allow this application to:
Modify/delete SD card contents (the INFOJET.org webviewer will not modify your SD card)
Full Internet Access (the INFOJET.org will need to use your internet connection to display the site)
Read phone state and identity" (the INFOJET.org webviewer will not read your phone state or identity)

The above list excludes foreign websites (which could number in the thousands or more). I did not wish to test these for concern I would be attacked by a epic array of viruses. Just be aware your information (SSN, credit card #s, bank account numbers, etc.) is likely available on these websites as well as those above.
People finder websites claim they obtain information from publicly accessible resources. To prevent your information from being displayed, you need to follow the non-publish/opt-out procedures for each website or use services that will do it for you for a fee. The non-publish or opt-out procedures often force you to send exact information (such as the month, day and year of your birth, photo copy or scanned driver's license) that the people finder websites may only have in fractional format. So, the process of opting out provides even more information to these companies or verifies the information they have as accurate and true which they may not have had prior to your opt-out request and increases its value for which they can sell it off to other affiliated and non-affiliated companies at a higher price (than non-verified information). Also and unfortunately, this removal process is not a not one-time event on your part as the people info publishing websites can easily apply their existing technology to a shiny new website name and/or phone app and again start publishing your information. You or a company you hire will have to contact this "new" company to remove your information. As you can easily figure out, this process (new website-app launched/your info published/you request to stop/they stop/transfer your info to a new company and start again) can keep going and going for a long time. The list above is not complete and is only accurate as of Nov. 2012. These websites may be helpful in performing background checks on individuals(such as a potential date or spouse, contractor, etc.). Famous people have a tough (almost impossible) challenge concealing their information from being publicly displayed as even sites such as Wikipedia and some search engines clearly publish their birth dates (m/d/y), spouse, children, locations lived, net worth and other information commonly available on people finder websites.
NOTE: Spokeo.com was fined $800,000 in June 2012 by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) for violation of the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). Spokeo was fined for collecting details about people and selling it (to supposed potential employers) without protecting individual privacy.
INFOJET.org has no affiliations (direct or indirect) with any people finder websites listed above.
Info removal sites (partial list): Reputation.com(fee charged to remove info from people finder sites, Expensive)(Infojet has no affiliation with Reputation.com)
NOTE: Some hosting providers have a WordPress Settings panel (like Installatron used by Omnis) that allows you to enter your WP website Title and Tagline(Description) which gets transferred to the Site Title and Tagline fields in the Wordpress Admin panel automatically(enter your Site Title and Tagline in one place (Hosting provider WP settings panel OR directly in the WP admin panel (Settings/General[title of WP General menu option page is actually--General Settings]).
To get your WordPress site/main page to clearly display the meta Description tag for Google (as of early 2017), the WORDPRESS_org codex page linked above (titled: Meta Tags in WordPress) indicates that you NEED to enter this PHP line in the <head> section of the header.php file (Theme Header file). The header.php file is located in the WP Admin panel under Appearance(click),Editor(click), move eyes to the right side of the Editor page to view a list of files under Templates and click Theme Header (header.php) to open up the header.php file in the Edit Themes window. Enter the PHP meta description php bloginfo line shown above in the head section and click or press the Update File button. NOTE--This process will add ONE meta description for your WP site. WP plugins such as Yost SEO may allow you to customize the meta descriptions for multiple WP pages(I haven't tried the Yost SEO plugin. So, I don't know if this plugin works for customizing meta descriptions for multiple pages. I only read that it did a relatively good job for meta descriptions from some reviews.).
