I’ve been online for over 10 years. How do I find all the web sites that I’ve joined? And then keep a list of them?

    @74b1db94b1fcc60bad03f969a9940032:disqus  Thanks for the suggestion and it does work for the last year or two. But -- we are talking about over 10 years of being online and 4-5 computer upgrades which means I've lost or deleted a lot of emails.

    use your email address of that site and search the emails received from those sites.
    every site registrations requesters an email verification.
    if you didn't delete those emails you can recover them.

    If you are like me and join many websites, I don't think you can find all the websites you ever joined.
    What you can do is to google the name of accounts that you use usually and then go to that site and try to delete it. Another thing you can do is to search your email account for registering notifications from sites you joined.
    Note that for some sites it is very hard or impossible to delete the account.
    What I do is keep a record of all sites I join and the account names. You can do that too, it's not so hard.

    Interesting suggestions! Whenever I register to a site, I file the confirmation email in a 'registrations' precisefly for that reason. As for your email, you should *always* have a backup ina safe place (I know it's a bit late saying this to you now, but hopefully others will benefit from the note). Personally, I prefer to keep my messages on a server either by using webmail (GMail, Yahoo etc) or at least IMAP instead of POP3.

    Wow , that Username Check site is extremely good , but why did you need to know which sites you joins in the last 10 years , If you like a site to sign up , if you were already registered , it will tell you about it and you can just recover your password .

    Use a password manager (my favorite is LastPass firefox addon). Whenever you will sign up in any site, it will ask you to save. After 10 years you will get all your joined site are listed.

    Try http://www.yasni.de.

    It searches the web continously for your name, and send an e-mail report with new results. It's not just usernames, also usenet posts, forum posts, etc.

    Yes -- I suppose you have a point about not visiting them in 10 years. But it is so much wanting to visit -- just wondering where all I've signed up.

    The million dollar question... Have you had the same email address for 10 years? If so, you can at least go to sites you would use ( because honestly, if you haven't visited them in 10 years, you don't need to know) and attempt to have them send you a password to your email.

    @Tina, @Steve Campbell, @Jack Coal

    Thanks for your suggestions. Looking back through emails is not a solution -- there's no way I could possibly keep emails for over 10 years. Besides my last laptop was stolen

    I tried the various sites and did find one or two that I don't remember and will verify.

    Again thanks for your help

    If you generally use the same username when signing up to all of your sites you can use a site like http://usernamecheck.com/ to check all of the social networks for profiles matching your username.

    You do have to remember which sites you've signed up for however, because there is a chance that someone else signed up with the same username under this method.

      I keep getting the message that usernamecheck.com is expired. If you're still interested in checking usernames across different websites, you can try http://namechk.com/.

    I agree with Tina. Remember what you signed up to, and go through your emails to see what you have signed up to.

    Also, you may want to try http://www.pipl.com and search for your name as it may come up with some others sites. However, some of the sites you may have forgot your password or your username which can be a bummer.

    Also, try some of these tools as they may help you out a bit.

      I'm not worried about where I've signed up, but, I've had more fun with this pipl site than I can remember!

        Yeah I know, Pipl is great. It's the first place I go to when I want to find more information about a person if I can't find anything on Facebook.

        It has come in really handy in the past.

    Nancy,

    I doubt that there is a free service that will find all of them for you. However, you can work with two free things: 1) your memory and 2) your old eMails in case you still have them.

    If you still have your eMails, you should be able to find the registration and confirmation messages you were sent after signing up. If you didn't sort your eMails, you can search them. Those eMails usually contain the words welcome, sign up, registration, account etc. Just be creative.

    Using just your memory is even easier because you will only remember the sites and services that matter! Make a list and if you can't remember the password, I'm sure you do remember the eMail addresses that you may have used to sign up. That way you may be able to request a new password and access the account again.

    Good luck!
