What does the internet know about us? 🤔
Well, over 350 companies hold sensitive personal data on any given person and about eight new companies get ahold of your data every month. Enter: Mine.
How it works: Mine lets you discover all the companies that hold your personal data in ~30 seconds. Then, in (literally) one-click you can request for the company to forget you. It’s a superrrr easy way to clean up your digital footprint from all the times you bought something online or signed up for a new digital service.
“Having been on the inside of the tech world, my co-founders and I saw how people, and even ourselves are losing trust in companies,” Mine co-founder and CEO Gal Ringel wrote on Product Hunt. “Our goal is to help you reduce unnecessary online exposure, without compromising your digital experience.”
The company has spent the last year in stealth until the company launched last week. It’s important that the company does not process or collect the content of your emails or your personal data, even though you have to give them access to your email to use the tool.

“Amazed to see how many places have my info even if I didn’t use them for years.” - Gabby
“If you can send the email on behalf of the user's email, that would make it more likely for me to accept the GPDR request directly.” - Benjy
