How to remove your MyOpenID account

General remark: the tricky part of logins used on multiple sites is that they mostly all have their own ToS/PP, so removing an open account may not mean removing everything submitted to the sites you used that account for. In those cases it may be really worthwhile to actually read the ToS/PP, for a change.

Be logged in, use the removal link. As you will see, there is a choice (checkbox) between deactivation and removal. Pretty neat.

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