If you want to get rid of your Internet presence, here are some good news for you. A Swedish website is offering the chance for users to delete themselves off the internet. lets people create a list of any live accounts that they have, and have probably forgotten and cleans them up.

The service asks users to give access to their Google account using OAuth; an open standard for authorisation and allowing an app to access contents without sharing their username or password.
