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.

By the way, removal requests don’t necessarily mean your data will actually be removed (e.g. due to legal obligations).
