Do you ever feel that the account you created on Facebook or Twitter or any other website is useless and you want to erase yourself from that website? Well, here’s a website which might help. I am not talking here about any service that want’s money from you to delete your accounts. I am talking here about JustDelete.me a web page full of useful links. These links take you directly to the page of the online service from where you can easily delete your account.
JustDelete.me has links for everything, starting from file sharing website like 4shared to picture sharing site 500px or Instagram, or any social network site like Facebook or Twitter or Google Plus, to even your regular email account on Hotmail or Gmail, the list is really big! The website removes the hassle a user faces when they try to delete their online account.
Each of the links are represented beautifully as buttons with color coding. A green button means deleting your account from that website is easy, a Yellow button represents that it’s moderately difficult to delete your account, Red obviously as you have guessed represents hard and Black button means “it’s simply impossible to delete your account from that website.”
How to use JustDelete.me to erase your online account?
Simply find the website whose account you want to delete. Click on the website’s name and JustDelete.me will take you to that website’s “special” page that allows you to delete your account. Although, not all websites have the “show info” button, but if one have, you can click on it to get instructions in plain English, how to delete your account from that site.
JustDelete.me not only helps user delete their online accounts, it also publicly shames websites who don’t allow users to delete their account ever. If you don’t have account’s on these types of websites, you can at least know before hand that your data will stay with them forever. These types of websites includes the popular streaming site Netflix and others like Evernote, Gawker Media, Go Daddy, Hacker News, Pinterest, Pastebin, Steam, etc.
A Chrome extension is also available for the service here.
Robb Lewis, a UK-based developer is behind JustDelete.me. On his blog, he says “after seeing a few tweets about how difficult it can be to delete your Skype account and then hearing that Netflix flat-out won’t delete your details, I decided to build JustDelete.me.”
