As you can see I like to write and share a lot on how to hack, bypass, block and trace effectively, collectively tricks and hacks category. I also write on security and privacy. Also consider reading article what internet or any website knows about you.
I was just looking for some information regarding my voter id card online but what I found was shocking! I come to know about how easily someone can find your exact location and real home address including your gender, age and father’s name (or husband or relative’s name) with just a single mouse click.
Delhi Government has given us facility to check for our voter id related information online but what I found is that anyone can find my personal information online and I can also do the same, I can also find all information about anyone online. To find someone’s address (or other information like gender, age etc) you just need to know his name and should have an idea of his location.
For Delhi: http://ceodelhi.gov.in/OnlineErms/ElectorSearchTest.aspx
And likewise all other states of India have such facilities available Google for “Chief Electrol Officer + Your State Name”. A few CEO sites are as follows.
Here is an image of result I found when I searched my name. I also searched a few other names and it revealed all information about them.
So, this is the trick to trace exact location of someone’s who lives in Delhi, India. Of course, you can easily amaze (or scare?) your online friends and strange people by telling them how much you know about them. Please don’t do anything with this public information that will put you in trouble or drag you to jail.
Exact Address is Online – Is this a Risk?
India has a population of 1200 Million, Delhi has a population of 20 million (2 Crore) and hopefully most of us have voter ID card if we are not minors. So, don’t you think this is a risk to our privacy? How secure you are now feeling?
I think they should have make the search a little more difficult by adding one compulsory field to it like DOB (Date of birth) or Phone no. but on the other hand it may ruin the facility and can prove to be useless but anyway, what do think about all this?
