Why do some people want to erase themselves completely from the Internet? I used to wonder about the same till I found the reason and had to do it myself. I am sure if you are considering this book, you too have a reason, but going through this process, I have learned a few valuable lessons. This book is all about those lessons, so you don't have to learn on the go as I had to. Instead, you can use this book as a guide and just follow the step by step process and see yourself disappear from the big World Wide Web.
Back in the days, if anyone wanted to live a private life, all they had to do was unpublish their home phone number and opt out of all mailing lists and you were done, but it is not so easy anymore. Every time we fill out a form, a survey, or fill out personal information on the social media, it is there forever. You may not remember what you filled out 10 years ago, but it is there for any prying eyes to see.
What is even worse? Let's say you didn't give out much information on the web, but you browse the net often, you search and surf the web via search engines as we all do, sadly most of the search engines like Google and Yahoo keep a tab on you, they know what you search for, they know what you like and what you don't. They do this by keeping up with your IP (Internet Protocol) address.
But don't give up, don't think it is not doable, because it is. I have done it, and you can too, just remember it is not something that can be done overnight, it will take some time and may cost you a little money, but at the end you can achieve that privacy and freedom you deserve. Trust me you will enjoy that privacy too.
One more thing, just because you are deleting yourself from the net, doesn't mean you can have an online life anymore because you can but little differently.
