Abine Launches a Delete Button For the Internet! [video]

This week may mark one of the greatest launches yet made in the history of the Internet: Abine, a US based privacy company, has launched DeleteMe.

What It Does:

Instead of tracking down your old content and profiles online, Abine offers a service that costs between $10 and $100 to track down and remove your data online. The service combines a mixture of automated and manual processes to track down personal information. Abine staffers will do much of the leg work, taking advantage of privacy regulations and firing off emails and faxes to unresponsive networks.

Although Abine can’t yet guarantee the deletion of all of your personal information online, they promise that “they are doing their best“.
