Maintaining privacy on the Internet is almost impossible and so the best course of action if you want to keep away from prying eyes on the web is not to use the Internet at all, but in case you do, which we assume you are as you are reading this piece of news coverage on the Internet, a new service has just popped up that claims that they can help you wipe off your existence on the Internet with few easy clicks.
Deseat.me is the latest website on the block that claims it can help you get rid of your tracks as well as accounts that you would have created and then forgot. What you need to do is login using your Google account and once logged on, it will scan your mailbox and matches online services you may have subscribed to. Once it is done, it will offer you links to all the services that you may have used at least once and through these handy links you can delete your account from each of those services. If you don’t know how to go about deleting the account from a particular service, it also helps you with that by giving you instructions on what to do.
The service claims that they take privacy and data security seriously. It suggests that the only information shared with them are the various accounts you’ve subscribed to, which you want to delete.
“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”, reads a statement on the site.
