This article is not WordPress or Mac related, but I think many readers will find it useful.
Over the months and years you’ve probably signed up for a variety of online and social media accounts, and you probably only actively use a handful of them. Want to close down the others? Here’s some help.
Firstly, you need to know what accounts you have. One site that goes a long way towards helping you with that is KnowEm. You can type in the username(s) you usually use to sign up on websites, and it will find the sites where those usernames exist. This will help you in the next step.
Secondly, you need to know how to delete or deactivate the accounts you no longer want. I’ve found two sites that help you do this, Just Delete Me and AccountKiller, and they both pretty much work the same way. You browse them to find the site where you want to remove your account, and they tell you how to do it, often taking you straight to the account deletion page of the site in question.
They also both tell you the difficulty level of getting rid of your account, which makes them useful on another level – if you’re thinking of signing up to a particular website, check these sites first to see whether you’ll be able to remove your account later.
