Re: Deleting user name, etc. from a website


 

Yes, some websites do hide any account removal links well and sometimes it’s easier to Google something like “How do I delete my xxx account” where you put in the name of the company, service or website for “xxx”. There are even websites where you simply can’t remove your account and you might have to request them to do this for you.

I think this is one area where legislation could do a lot. Every service or website should allow for one’s account to be closed and removed and it should be manditory that a link to do so should be just as easily accessible on the main page as the link to sign up for an account or the “Contact Us” link.

Okay, thank you very much. Evidently, each site has this, but they keep it well hidden so you have to struggle to do this. Have a good day.
