How To Completely Remove Yourself From The Internet
We’re in a day and age where our day-to-day lives are ruled by our online activity. Whether we’re at work or having leisure time, site-by-site, we’re constantly leaving an online footprint.
Since the birth of the internet, people across the world have posted their personal data, opinionated statuses and embarrassing photos to a host of social media sites, forums and other platforms. It’s safe to say for many of us, our lives are an open book.
Unfortunately, being an open book can have its consequences. We’ve all heard unfortunate stories of employers screening candidates for potential jobs, only to turn them down because of their social media presence. Or all too commonly, hackers manage to retrieve and sell on our personal information to the random people across the web. Comments that are made on forum sites can all too easily be traced back as well.
But what if you could make that footprint disappear? Or at the very least your social media footprint. Perhaps you’d just like a more private life online, or have a job offer coming up that you don’t want to jeopardise, WD Storage have put together this guide on how to get your online footprint permanently offline.
