Great Suggestions For Those Interested In Disappearing Online

by Beatrice Lambert

If you like your privacy, you may not want to appear online. It might be a personal preference and in order to achieve this goal, here are some strategies you can implement with great success. 

Take Data Off of Data Broker Websites

There are actually professionals that mine for people's personal data so that they can sell it to companies for a profit. They're known as data brokers and they could potentially have some personal information that's sensitive to you.

In that case, it's a good idea to check this out and take steps to remove this data from these brokers' websites. Then you won't appear in search engines and companies won't be able to reach out when you don't want them to. You'll thus be able to disappear online and subsequently have the privacy that you may be looking for.

Delete Old Email Accounts

You may have several old email accounts that you no longer use or wish to have. These accounts may still be targeted by companies and scammers though. For this reason, it's a good idea to delete these old email accounts as quickly as you can. It's a great way to disappear online quickly.

You just need to figure out what email accounts are still open in your name. If you have trouble gaining access to said email accounts — because it may have been a long time since you longed on — you can always get professional help and thus have more success gaining access so you can delete these accounts later. 

Consult With an Online Data Specialist

If you want to combine your own efforts to disappear online with tactics from a professional, then it's a good idea to consult with an online data specialist. They can supplement strategies you already tried in an effective manner.

They have a lot more resources than you do too, so you can trust their assistance will pay off in dividends. Some things they can help remove online include your name, address, and cell phone number. Taking these things off the internet is vital in maintaining a private life for years going forward. 

A lot of people today don't want their information to be readily available online. They may wish to disappear online entirely in fact. If this is one of your goals, it's important to focus on strategies that can help you have success.
