How to remove your ID.net account

Well, this is kind of hilarious. Or sad, for that matter. An online ID management site that does not provide account removal.

To have your account removed, remove your personal data, and contact them privacy@id.net. Tell them your under aged kid created the account, and you want to have it removed. Please share your results!

 

 

Helpful Trick: Obfuscate your profile info.

Because most accounts and profiles at ID.net cannot be removed, we suggest you login and change your account and profile information altogether.

Make sure you are logged in to your account on the site and click on the profile or options settings. Locate the fields with your personal info (email, name, address) and fill in generic, random information instead. If you can only select from several fields, change anything personally identifying. If possible, use a homepage/URL field or long text field (such as Description) and put this line in it: http://remove.org/removal-requested. This may encourage webmasters and admins to create an easier removal outlet.

Helpful Trick: Removing online data

Publicly visible text/images often aren’t properly removed even when you succeed in removing an account. Try editing or removing them manually before removing the account itself. If you’re unsure what happens to your tracks: this can be found mostly in the Terms of Service/Privacy Policy; otherwise you can always contact ID.net and ask personally. By the way, removal requests don’t necessarily mean your data will actually be removed (e.g. due to legal obligations).
