If you're anything like me, you visit a whole bunch of different websites on any given day. It seems that lately, more sites want you to create an account before you can use their services. That's fair enough. For example, companies like Amazon or Etsy need to know things like your email address and physical address so they can send you what you ordered.

But creating all these accounts comes with some major pains. Your inbox can quickly fill up with emails you weren't sure you signed up for in the first place. I know it's happened to you at least once!

Or even worse, the site you are doing business with could suffer from a data breach or big-time hack. If you have as many online accounts as I have, there are dozens of sites that have bits and pieces of my information. Guess what - they have the same scoop on you, mainly your email address, username and password at a minimum.

Are you scared yet? Don't be. There are steps you can take to keep yourself protected. I recommend getting rid of old, unwanted and unused accounts. Just wipe the slate clean.

Sound like a tough thing to tackle? Sure, every site has different rules on how to close your account, and some are more difficult to get rid of than others, but that's where today's cool site comes into play.
