You can now delete yourself from the Internet

If you are tired of the Internet and want to remove your digital footprint from it, there is a website that can help you.

Delete yourself from the Internet

If you feel like scrubbing your presence off the Internet, well there is a website that has come to answer your prayers.

A Swedish website deseat.me will allow you erase yourself (almost) completely from the Internet. With the click of your mouse, your digital footprint will be wiped away.

If interested, sign in with your Google account. The website searches the Internet and finds all the accounts you signed up to using your Google account. These accounts also include the all-powerful social networking site Facebook.

Deseat.me was created by Wille Dahlbo and Linus Unnebäck, Swedish programers. According to them, their creation allows you ‘clean up your existence’ by bringing together all your online accounts and deleting them.

The website isn't perfect, unfortunately. If you signed up to an online account without using your Google account details, deseat won't be able to delete your online footprint from it.

If you are worried about giving your Google details to a website, Deseat uses Google OAuth protocol which ensures that no site has access to your Google account.

So if you are interested in ghosting from the Internet, this might just be the thing for you.
