Swedish Developers Make it Easy to Delete Your Existence on The Internet
Highlights
  • It’s not easy to remove your existence from the Internet today
  • There may be services that you’re subscribed to and don’t remember
  • Deseat.me helps you find all your accounts & how to easily delete them

To many of us reading this, our life on the Internet is as important as our life outside it. The Internet retains your connections to other people, photographs, videos, thoughts shared via comments, blogs and social media, etc. While not practical for everybody, some of you wanting to remove your existence from the Internet may find it a daunting task. That’s because there’s no easy way to track every service you’ve subscribed to.

That is why a bunch of Swedish developers built deseat.me. Spotted by The Next Web, this service asks you to give access to your Google account using OAuth; an open standard for authorisation and allowing an app to access contents without sharing your username or password.

Once you’ve granted that, it scans through your mailbox and matches online services you may have subscribed to. After this, it will provide you with handy links to delete your account from each of these services. The service is also said to offer instructions on how you can delete those accounts for good.

The service claims that they take privacy and data security seriously. It suggests that the only information shared with them are the various accounts you’ve subscribed to, which you want to delete.
