    I love silver stackers but I am also an information junkie. I am deleting all online accounts. How do I delete my Silver Stacker account?

    I went through the entire process of closing my FB account, but the WHOLE lot is still on their computer!

    For future reference, technically you can never delete your FB account. Everything you upload on there is permanently their property. It's in their servers for however long they choose. When you delete things all you're really doing are deleting the links that make those files accessible. There are also government mandated guidelines that dictate how long these companies are required to keep your information in case the government needed to access files for "national security". Same goes for snapchat, tinder, instgram and just about any other social media site you can think of. Once you're there you're stuck.

    Plus any photos you upload to FB is only private on FB.

    If you right click on a photo set to the highest security and copy the URL into a browser it is there for anyone to see.

    That's why I never had a FB account or any other social media one over privacy issues. Besides, why tell the world/strangers private things about yourself.

    The internet can be a beautiful and horrible place at the same time, and it isn't weird to sometimes feel like you want to leave there's wasn't an easy way out, until now.

    Swedish developers Wille Dahlbo and Linus Unnebck created Deseat.me, which offers a way to wipe your entire existence off the internet in a few clicks

    Deseat.me, finds old accounts linked with google and cancels you account. However it has zero, nada, absolutely no ability to delete a single photo, email, or forum postor anything you ever wrote in the internet ever.

    Not true here, just PM goldpelican and ask for your account to be deleted.

    Shoot me a PM and I can delete it. I have a backlog of messages at the moment so it might be a few days.
