Clean Up Your Online Presence in 2020

Do you know the extend of your online presence? Do you still stand by what you said, in that one obscure forum, 10 years ago? If you're like me, you don't even remember all that you've done online but the internet remembers and it will for as long as the servers are kept alive.

Make 2020 the year where you review and become mindful of your online presence. The below is a few things you can do:
  • Go through your old Facebook posts and delete what is no longer relevant.
  • Search for your account names, emails or other type of aliases you've used in the past and see what comes up. Delete the accounts that you no longer use or update the password of those that you still actively use.
  • When making new posts, subscribing to a new online service or site, think about the trail you're leaving behind.
  • When deleting an app be sure to also delete the account associated to the app (when ever it applies).
We're a few weeks into 2020 let's make this year the year we're mindful of our online presence.
