How to remove myself from the Internet

Have you ever tried to remove all those old and unused accounts of you from the Internet? Well, sometimes this might seem an easy job, but in fact it’s not. If you want to erase any trace of you from the Internet, you either have to login on every single service and search in the upper/lower menu from “disable/delete account” link, or you can use a new service create in England that works with the most important social and non-social websites around: JustDelete.me

According to its own description, the service is a “directory of direct links to delete your account from web services.” It helps you permanently delete your Facebook, Amazon, Battle.net, eBay or Dropbox accounts. The idea is pretty simple but extremely helpful. There are websites where you can remove your account with one simple click and others where you have to follow multiple steps.

There are websites like Pinterest, Craigslist, Wikipedia, WordPress, Steam, GoDaddy, HackerNews, Netflix and MyOpenID that doesn’t allow you to permanently remove your data. In such cases, you have to “trick” the websites into believing you are someone else. So, you have to change all the details from that account (name included) before disabling it.
