About Plaxo

In 2002, we set out to solve a difficult problem - how can we help the world's address books so that contacts never become out-of-date?

We've made great strides in this endeavor, powering a unique address book system that consolidates all your contacts across sources, automatically cleans and updates contact information, and syncs your pristine address book everywhere you need it - all securely backed-up in the cloud.

Today, Plaxo.com is the world's leading online address book, storing over 50 million address books with 3.7 billion contacts.

And as new devices, online services, and social networks arise, the people you know and their contact information will only become increasingly fragmented and unreliable. We remain dedicated to evolving and supporting our products and helping our members navigate the shifting communications landscape to ensure that Plaxo truly is and remains, your address book for life.

How you can control sharing of your own contact info

Plaxo members can share their contact info with others using our contact card sharing and profile features. You can decide what info Plaxo shares (e.g. name, photo, birthday, emails, phone numbers, mailing addresses) and with whom Plaxo shares it (e.g., only with specific contacts, groups of contacts, or public).

Plaxo Personal Assistant suggests updates to the contact info contained within its subscribers' address books. Anyone, whether a Plaxo member or not, can prevent Plaxo from suggesting updates regarding their own contact info by opting out of Personal Assistant.
