Can you actually remove yourself from the Internet?


You may often wonder (well may be not often) “Can you actually remove yourself from the Internet?”

An article that I read had this company called Deseat Me. They are using primarily the access you have using your Google account and it’s open authentication standard. I.E. if you have a Google account, you can sign up for services using this account.

Can you actually remove yourself from the Internet?

For more explanation from their web site: “Privacy and data security is something we regard as extremely important. In fact, its our number one focus from beginning to end. Thats why we built it to run on your computer. So basically the only thing you’re telling us is what accounts you want to delete. Thats it, and since we use Googles OAuth protocol we don’t have access to any of your login information.”

 

It is a really easy process using your Google ID:

  1. Go to this address: http://deseat.me
  2. Select to “sign on” with your Google account.
  3. Can you actually remove yourself from the Internet step 1Select which the services you want to keep or delete from your Google Profile.

Can you actually remove yourself from the Internet step 2

*Remember once you select to delete an account that means transactions, history etc. will be lost for the most part (each company may or may not store your data for reference in the future).

This will not delete all of your accounts and access using other open authentication methods only for Google. So it might be just step one in cleaning up your online identity if you decide to go off the grid. Tools like this get you a little closer to answering the question of Can you actually remove yourself from the Internet?
