Hi Folks

Recently I heard that you can have all your previous historical posts and other information put online erased or amended.

Can someone be kind enough to tell me the correct procedure for doing this?

Thanks in advance.

That’s not all suspicious.

It's going to be entirely dependent on which website/company that has the information, there's no magic button that deletes you from the internet.

It is very very difficult. You're better off changing names and getting a face transplant.

Rich people who can afford it, employ legal help to threaten private owners of websites and media accounts into deleting info they have on them. But that is scarcely successful, even if it wins in court.

If there is a few specific websites you have in mind, I'd suggest writing to the owners perhaps, or using whatever procedures they have laid out on their sites... for requesting your information to be removed or deleted.

But in the meantime, anyone else could have downloaded it as well, and simply put it back up... even under a fake account set up in your name.

And you know you're going to be back where you started when your annoying niece tags you on Instagram two days later.
