Have you ever made an account with an online service, then decided not to use it anymore? Last year, the SANS Internet Storm Center had a diary on abandoned email accounts that discussed how they can be abused by spammers. Furthermore, if you left any information in the account and someone managed to compromise it, they could then not only impersonate you, but also access any information you left behind.
But how do you go about deleting an account from popular online services? Every one is different, and the difficulty can range from easy to nearly impossible. Enter Account Killer. Account Killer simplifies the process by giving you direct links to the deletion pages, when available.
If you’re no longer using an account, you should consider deleting it.
