If you are tired of the internet's onslaught on your personal life, so much so that you want to permanently and completely get off it, you absolutely can.
With more and more people wanting to go off the grid, corresponding services have cropped up that aid users in doing just that.
Let's look at the various measures you can take towards internet invisibility.
Delete your accounts
Delete all your accounts, from social media and streaming services to e-mail addresses. Everything has to go.
Now let's come to bigger problems. For deleting Google and Apple accounts, that are cloud-connected across their services, use a tool called AccountKiller.
It quickly navigates you through all delete account web pages that are otherwise impossible to find on bigger platforms (or older platforms like MySpace).
Use a free kill-all service
However, some of your private data is still online. For erasing that, use a free kill-all service like Deseat.me that will "clean up your online presence."
You'll have to give Deseat.me your username and password, and it will look into your personal files for any details still tied to that particular account.
After that, you will get a direct link to remove the account.
Use a paid kill-all service
Now what's left is the data that wasn't created by you. These are records used for targeted advertising created through websites like Intelius that regularly breach your privacy without your knowledge.
For this, you can use a paid kill-all service like DeleteMe that can remove your name from various data-broking websites across the virtual globe.
These services usually cost $129 a year.
Or you know, just use a VPN
A VPN can conceal your location and IP address. It's the perfect solution to not go completely obscure on the worldwide web and be encrypted in your web surfing at the same time. For this, you can use some best VPN services that are around.
