When I think about all the websites that I have an account, I struggle to name them all. Of course there is my account on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn or Google.
Still, many people have more accounts on websites that they might not use anymore. I am thinking of Basecamp, bitly, eBay, and so there are many more services that I am reminded of when I am brave enough to peruse my email junk folder. Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a website where all the research had been done for you? The solution is JustDelete.me.
JustDelete.me on you will discover a comprehensive overview of the most popular websites. Then you are taken directly to the page via the links on the site where you can delete the account.
If the page you are looking for is not among the list? You can add a new location to the database. I was surprised that some websites were identified with the colour black as being impossible to delete, i.e. Pinterest, and Netflix. I am reminded that some aspects of my digital footprint will be around for along time.
The website has an extension for your Chrome browser
When you are on a website that is listed on justdelete.me, the Chrome Extension will add a small dot to the toolbar. Clicking on this dot will take you to the relevant delete page.
