How To Permanently Delete Your Account on Popular Websites

We all have an increasing number of sites and online services we’re members of, and sometimes it all gets a little overwhelming. At times, we just need to delete our memberships to some sites, either in an effort to simplify our lives or just because we’ve grown tired of a particular site or service.

What we often don’t realize when signing up for all these accounts, though, is how difficult it can be to permanently delete our accounts when we’ve had enough. Some require complicated, multi-step processes that can stretch over the course of days (or weeks). Others take less time, but still require multiple steps by the user.

    Interesting post, but…Why to delete its? I mean, if you leave its like that there’s nothing bad that is going to happen, right? So why all the trouble? :)

    I’m amazed that some sites makes it so difficult to delete your personal information, this goes hand in hand with the proposals that some organisations have made to make personal information fade over time.

    Perhaps when a user chooses to delete their profiles, the most important information is deleted first and then other information fades over time in case they choose to re-instate their profiles at a later date.

    A very useful article though, very informative
