Clean Online Accounts
You’ll likely want to do one of two things with your online accounts:
- delete them
- unsubscribe to them
Option 1: Delete Old Accounts
If you never use the account and even forgot that you had it, then it’s a good idea to delete your account. I recommend the following steps:
- Remove all your personal information from your profile.
- Delete any content that you may have uploaded to the account.
- Delete the account. You can usually find an option to do that in Settings or in a few cases, you may have to contact customer support. If you need to contact customer support, don’t let that dissuade you!
Option 2: Change Subscription Settings
You may want to keep the account, but reduce the number of emails that you receive from it. To do so, find the newsletter settings/preferences after logging into your account to decide the frequency of notifications. You may even want to completely turn off emails from the account. While you’re at it, it’s a good opportunity to clean your Inbox and secure your account.
