In this generation of the internet, privacy is myth with everything you search for, every site you visit and not to mention your social media account leaking out information about you. It’s a serious unnerving feeling isn’t it? The thought that every move you make is being tracked!.

Of Course you can cut out your online presence to a great extent by kicking up your privacy settings to maximum and deleting data trails, but it still does not make you completely invisible. However, this service claims it can erase you from the internet.

Deseat.me, founded by Sweden-based developers, Wille Dahlbo and Linus Unnebäck can  apparently clear your presence in the internet.

You will need to sign up with the service using your Google account. Before the site starts deleting your presence it asks for your email ids and passwords, which it uses to list out all the websites you have signed up for. You will later need to give a confirmation to permanently delete everything. You will also be given the option of deleting to delete your data from individual websites.

“We match them with direct links to their delete page, and instructions on how to delete your account for good,” the developers write in the website.     

In order to maintain an user’s privacy and security, the website is designed to run directly on your computer and not in their servers. “So basically the only thing you’re telling us is what accounts you want to delete. That’s it, and since we use Google’s OAuth protocol, we don’t have access to any of your login information,” mention the developers

However, the service currently is only able to retrieve deletion information from small websites and popular social media ones like Facebook, Twitter, etc.

Speaking of security, it is really important that you keep a check on what you share on social media. Especially photographs, as there plenty a reported instances where photos have been misused.
