    ( From Another Thread )

    Good Luck With That.

    There Are 2 Kinds Of Sites:

    A - Mainstream Sites That Publish Original Content, And,

    B - Lots Of Dubious Clone Sites That Copy Absolutely Anything And Everything From Their ( A ) Counterparts.

    Being Successful With ( A ), To Remove Your Content, May Be Possible ( Do Not Count With FB, Though ), But ( B ) Is A Never Ending Headache.

    As I Said, Good Luck With That.

    Cheers.

    I like spreading disinformation in the comments to articles,that way,a web search has a harder time finding the real me.For example,I use an age that is a few years older/younger,and a bogus birth date. I add a sister when I actually have a brother,etc to my personal profile. The government uses this method when they want to deflect inquiries about the classified goings on at Area 51,for example, by spreading rumours that the site houses recovered UFOs.

      However, your IP never changes so no matter how much disinformation you spread, you can be followed as if you were wearing a neon sign with your name.

    Wow! It's a whole hell of a lot easier to just conduct yourself in a mature manner and use discretion in cases where you you wouldn't want the world to know. Problem is companies like Google, who integrate dozens of apps - which is convenient - but have so many different settings for privacy and sharing that it takes a mathematical solver just to figure it all out!

    I'm surprised that dragonmouth isn't here yet. Call me a skeptic, I don't believe that you're able to erase your existence completely from the internet. Your friend might have written a blog post mentioning you, a colleague might have said something about you in their social media accounts, your own writing might end up in some random aggregation website. If you wish to remain completely anonymous in this day and age, go hide yourself somewhere remote.

      You have just proven that disappearing online is impossible. You have mentioned my super secret handle. :-)

      @Jackson:
      I hope your article is tongue-in-cheek.
      You neglected to mention the use of Tor and VPN.
      EVEN if one does everything that you have outlined, there are still databases that hold data about you. Even if you change your name, quit using the 'Net completely, do not use ANY form of electronic communication, do not use snail mail, avoid using doctors and hospitals, you will be photographed by countless security cameras.
      BTW - how do you propose to expunge all the data collected on you by the NSA and other covert and overt government agencies???

    You know, I always thought being completely erased from the internet was impossible. But now I see that it is, but it's just a ton of work to do! But then because alot of things are online now, leaving the internet behind is pretty hard. Though I do not want to disappear from the whole internet, I find quite a few things in this article helpful to protecting my identity and personal information from those who'd exploit it. Thanks for the advice!

      " I always thought being completely erased from the internet was impossible."
      It is impossible. Of the top of my head I can think of two databases from which you WILL NOT be able to delete your information if you are an American - Social Security Administration and the IRS. Probably there are others. There are also many databases about which we do not know, or to which we have no access which contain our personal data. A good example is the NSA and other government agencies. Also do not forget the countless cameras installed by various entities for various reasons. The all-seeing machine from the TV show "A Person of Interest" may or may not exist. However, the networks of cameras that provide the machine with information do exist and are relatively easy to access..

      Well, those are government agencies. You can't disappear from them, even if you never in your life used the internet. And frankly, I don't care so much what information my government (that is, Canada) has on me, because I am a citizen, and they must respect my privacy according to Canadian law, and our Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Meanwhile, the NSA can collect as much data on me as they want. I don't like it, and don't approve of it, but I have nothing to hide from them, and if collecting all my online data makes them feel better when I visit my American friends, then so be it! But mainly the only ones I wish to disappear from the web from is tracking sites, and any websites who'd seek to use my data for marketing without my permission. So as you say, it is impossible, but I have discovered the feat is alot less futile then I had expected it to first be. That is, I though nothing could possibly be done at all.

      Anything that's worth anything is a ton of work to do
