Do you want to disappear from the internet?

Have you ever had the uneasy sense that someone is monitoring you? I’m sorry to tell you this, but you have a lot of secret admirers. Tech corporations, advertisers, snoops, and ambitious hackers are all attempting to obtain as much information about you as possible.

The first step toward regaining your privacy is to disable all intrusive GPS trackers and hidden maps. For eight buried settings that need to be changed right now, tap or click. Now it’s time to take a look around.

You can look for your name on Google, but it won’t bring up everything that’s out there. Start digging up all the dirt that others can see when they search you up online by tapping or clicking here. It’s practically hard to completely erase yourself from the internet, but you can erase a lot if you know where to look.

Facebook

Facebook and the term “data collecting” are synonymous. We’ve known for years that the social media behemoth follows you throughout the internet, and it hasn’t exactly been cautious with our personal data. In 2019, a data breach exposed the personal information of over 530 million individuals.

If you want to secure your profile, you’ll have to browse through a few settings to get everything. To modify ten security and privacy settings, tap or click here.

You can delete your profile if you don’t want to deal with all of that. On a computer, follow these steps:

In the upper right corner, click the down arrow icon.
Click Settings & Privacy > Settings, then in the left column, click Your Facebook Information.
Deactivation and deletion are the options.
Select the Delete Account option.
Then select Account Deletion from the drop-down menu.

You’ll be given the option of deactivating your account or downloading your data. If you want to deactivate, your information will remain accessible. To remove:

Select Account Delete.
Click Continue, then Delete Account after entering your password.
If you change your mind after deleting your account, you have 30 days to log back in and restore it. Keep in mind that you’ll also lose access to Facebook Messenger.

Instagram

If you have a public account on this Facebook-owned social media platform, you can bet your images are being scrutinized. Even if yours is private, it’s difficult to know who can see what you write unless you keep a tight eye on your friends list.

The option to remove is not available in the standard menu. To delete this account, follow these steps:

To get to the Delete Your Account page, tap or click here.
Why are you deleting your account? Choose an item from the drop-down menu. and then type your password in.
Choose Delete (your username).
One month after you hit the delete button, Instagram will remove your profile and account information. Between now and then, you won’t be visible on Instagram. If you change your mind before the deletion date, you can log back in and choose to maintain your account.

Twitter

Don’t forget about Twitter if you’re deleting your internet presence. You may not have revealed as much there, but it’s still a part of the puzzle.

It’s simple to delete your Twitter account. Log in to your computer and complete the following steps:

From the menu, select Settings and Privacy. When you’re logged in, click More in the right-hand menu to discover it.
Deactivate your account by going to Your Account > Deactivate.
When prompted, enter your password and confirm that you wish to proceed by clicking the Deactivate account option.

Twitter, like Facebook, waits 30 days before removing your account completely. Your personal information will be kept private throughout this period. If you log in, your account will be restored in its entirety.

Even deleted tweets may turn up in online searches, as Twitter advises.

Amazon

Everything is available on Amazon for a reasonable price. Still, you probably don’t want others to see your product reviews and ratings, as well as your biographical information and other site activities.

Although your public profile does not include transactions or browsing history, it still contains a wealth of information. Here’s how to make it happen:

Access your Amazon account.
Select Account by hovering over Account and Lists in the upper right corner.
Click Your Amazon profile under Ordering and shopping preferences.

Select Edit your public profile from the drop-down menu.
Edit public profile and Edit privacy settings are both available here.

To review the various options, click through them. You can change the information in the about me section, as well as your shopping lists, wish lists, and any pets you’ve added. Check out the section on community activities as well.

Google

“Yeah, Google knows a lot about me,” you probably think. But do you realize how much it costs? To examine all of the data points about you that the search giant has collected, tap or click here. You’ll be taken aback.

Consider this. If you use Google for searches, email, navigation, photo storage, or YouTube video viewing, the data stream is never-ending.

The first step is to delete your search history and activity. You may also clean your Google Chrome data, wipe what you’ve said to Google Assistant, and block tailored adverts.

Each one has its own set of procedures. It won’t take long, and it’ll be well worth your time if you care about your privacy. To delete what Google knows about you, tap or click here. On Google Street View, you may also blur images of your property. This is how.

Sites are searched by people.

There are several names for these internet databases. People search sites, people finding sites, people search engines, background check sites, and other terms are used to describe them. They’re all pretty much the same.

To gather as much information about you as possible, they scrape publicly available social media accounts and public records sites. Take a look at a couple of them to see how much they know. The scary aspect is that most of this information is freely available to anyone who looks you up online.

What can you do to stop it? If you request it, these sites are required by law to remove your information. That isn’t to say they make things simple.

CyberBackgroundChecks.com is a website that is remarkably accurate. I was astounded when I saw my profile.

Remove yourself from genealogy and ancestry websites.

In theory, DNA kits sound interesting. You can learn more about your history and where you originated from. However, I dislike the concept of giving a firm my personal genetic information.

Make sure you follow the steps exactly. You should never pay to get removed from this or any other website.

There’s also 23andMe. You can remove your account from the Account Settings page if you no longer want to share your personal information with 23andMe.

“Genetic Information and/or Self-Reported Information that you have already submitted and for which you have granted approval to use in 23andMe Research, as specified in any applicable Consent Document, cannot be deleted from ongoing or completed studies that use that information,” says the disclaimer.

If you’ve used Ancestry.com, you can ask the corporation to remove your results and revoke access to your DNA.
