Our celebration of the age of information seems to have been short-lived. It didn’t take very long for us to realize how destructive information can be: As there are more and more fake news, toxic speech, online scams and of course, cyberstalking, many people are now worried about their privacy and they want to delete themselves from the Internet to be a little more comfortable. If you’re one of them, here’s a handy tool for you: Deseat.me!
Wille Dahlbo and Linus Unnebäck designed this internet deletion site as a place for people to "clean up your internet presence."
All you need to do is to hit the “detonate” button.
So there comes the question: Does Deseate.me violate my privacy?
Deseat.me is fairly limited at the moment.
It also hasn't managed to retrieve account deletion information from every service yet so some appear with a greyed out delete button.
If you think this website isn’t good enough for you, here are a few more ways to become a little less visible on the Internet. For starters, google your name.
Don’t use social media at all if you’re not comfortable enough about them.
Take a closer look at your smartphone.
In sum, be more cautious about your web presence in every sense.
