Have you ever wanted to drop some online newsletter or service but found it hard to figure out how to cancel and remove your account? It is very common for cancelling a service to be a lot more involved than signing up. Sometimes it takes a major hunt to find out how to remove your account.
Hunt no more. Cancelling an account has been made much easier by a website called JustDelete.me. It lists hundreds of services with a link right to the proper cancellation page for each. It also offers a preview of the cancellation policy of many services. This is worth looking at before you sign up with somebody so you can get an idea of how hard it will be to cancel if you don’t like the service. Also, some services won’t let you delete an account entirely once it is set up – Pinterest and WordPress, for example - something worth knowing.
