A better way to delete unwanted online accounts

Are you suffering from digital overload? Keeping up with all the emails, tweets, Facebook posts, news updates and notifications can make your head spin — especially if those notifications are from unwanted accounts.

And you know by now, the more online accounts you have, the more at risk you are when hackers come calling. With a new breach around every corner, your usernames and passwords just aren’t safe.

You can delete your unwanted accounts, but that’s not always the easiest thing to do. Certain sites like Pinterest and Evernote make it impossible to erase it from your digital life. Other sites hide their delete links deep within the site, meaning you have to dig pretty deep to find it.

That’s where JustDelete.Me comes in. The site has a directory of links to get rid of hundreds of various accounts.

Sites are color-coded by difficulty. Green is easy, red is hard, and black is impossible. Click on the top name is the colored box to be redirected to the section of that site that lets you delete your accounts.

If you need to remove yourself from a “hard” or “impossible” site, click on Show Info. There you will see specific instructions on how to get yourself removed. Handy!

Now, time to get deleting.
