Hi everyone! 👋 Thanks for the incredible feedback that we have gotten. The response have been truly amazing, I could never believe that this would grow so extremely fast! 🙌🚀 As some of you have noticed, we have been experience som issues with the google sign in 😫 I'm happy to say that it should now be resolved 👏 After a lot of stressful work we managed to get everything up and running again! A sincere apology to everyone who couldn't log in, I understand the frustation that occurs when tech doesn't work. I hope that you are willing to give us a second chance ❤️ Last, a huge thank you to all of you. As I said, the feedback has been amazing and we appreciate each and every comment. Rock on 🤘

@rotemthegolfer I'm with you there....
@rotemthegolfer I just tested it with my spam email. You will get a list with all Accounts and then you have to chose if you want to keep it or add it to the delete queue.

@rotemthegolfer It doesn't delete everything at once, you choose which ones you want to delete after you get a full list. :) (Regarding privacy, we built the app to run your computer and are using Google OAuth protocol for ultimate data security. It can't be more secure than that.)

@wille_dahlbo cool! @phippuuuu - Thanks, my curiosity was killing me :)

@wille_dahlbo @rotemthegolfer so you can see all data from account before deleting it?

@wille_dahlbo
@mikhail_ezhov @rotemthegolfer Just the fact that you are a user at the service, no specific data from the service itself.

@wille_dahlbo @rotemthegolfer How do I make sure that those accounts are deleted? Is there any way for that?

@rotemthegolfer I don't think that someone has done so yet. I'd like to see this work. 😄

@wille_dahlbo How do I remove things from my delete queue?

@wille_dahlbo
@angelofrancisco Just press 'Delete ⛔️' :)
B. Scott@bscottx
@wille_dahlbo Is there a reason it asks permission to view/search email messages in my Gmail account?

@wille_dahlbo
@bscottx Its to index what accounts you have, though the app runs completely on your computer.
Tom Bielecki@tombielecki · Cofounder, PrintToPeer
@wille_dahlbo @angelofrancisco press delete to not delete something? that sounds pretty counterintuitive
Willow Bellemore@istx25 · iOS Developer
@tombielecki @wille_dahlbo @angelofrancisco "Remove from Queue" would be better.
Hanna Xu@hannaxu · Designer at Gfycat
@wille_dahlbo Tried it with a small account. But I noticed no way to delete my deseat me account after trying it. A bit odd that a site used to help delete accounts cannot easily delete the account.

I really like the idea and tested it with an old gmail account I ditched some years ago. It found about 50 accounts and I selected nearly all of them. But then I realised it doesn't do anything automatically. It just provides you a to-do list with links to the services' account deletion page. It is a nice start to know where you still have all your old accounts but still there is too much manual work needed.

@herrrhein man, we have a lazy society when clicking a few times is described as "too much manual labor"
Alex Abian@alexabian · Intl. SysAdmin / Photographer
@the_real_jw But clicking a few times x 100, its clicking A LOT!
Bryna Corcoran@brynatweets · VP, Digital Marketing
@the_real_jw, @herrrhein is right. I tried it too and I was ok to go one by one and begin to delete things manually, but some of the accounts you have to log into in order to delete the accounts entirely. It's bloody tiring! Example: Delete Tumblr > login to Tumblr > Please use password you set up ages ago to approve this deletion > Oh, you don't remember that password? > Click forgot password link > Recover password > Log back in > Now, where were we? Oh, right .. delete account > Are you sure you want to delete account? > Yes > Please use password you reset to approve this deletion > 25 mins later you have now finally deleted you account > Now on to the next account Deseat me suggests > Ugh, forget it.

@herrrhein I thought the same thing initially. It automates the process of going through Gmail to find likely Internet-service accounts associated with the given email address. That alone is helpful; I would opt to not create a list (and therefore not delete anything) if I had to scour my backlog of Gmails manually. The secondary value prop is that they have done the legwork to find the delete links, etc., making each account's removal process as simple as possible. If that's true, that's also a significant time saver. I would ask, though, if my assumption is correct--i.e., does it 'only' find accounts associated with Gmail? That would not remove me from the Internet by a long shot.
Will Bowman@asked_io · Kickback Apps
@alexabian @the_real_jw I stopped after 5, nothing deleted. A few clicks would be better then what it is now: * click to add to list * click to delete * click to goto site to delete * X clicks @ w/e site you goto, if there is even an option * click (or kb stroke) to close newly opend tab Could just click once, add to list = goto site to remove, bam, done.

I'm a bit disapointed. I sign-in with my google account then ... loading animation ... never ending ... error in app.js in the chrome console, nothing in safari ... Waiting 10-15min. Still nothing. How long is it supposed to be ?

@thibaultmilan I'm very sorry to hear that :( With a fast internet connection it should only take a few seconds, so obviously I screwed up somewhere. > error in app.js in the chrome console Could you post the error message? > nothing in safari Probably because of how Promise rejections are handled in Safari. Sadly it doesn't report anything :(

@linusu Tested on Safari and Chrome with 2 different gmail accounts and I'm facing the same problem : after typing my password it redirects me to the account chooser page (accounts.google.com/AccountChooser) but clicking on the account redirects me to the same account chooser page. No error in console.

@linusu @frankmoshe @thibaultmilan Was getting tons of 500 errors in console but a refresh did the trick! Edit: After what felt like forever, I was able to triage 200+ accounts, but in the end only 3 had delete instructions >_< I hope you can continue to take this tool further and also reassure users that hitting "add to queue" or "delete" won't automatically close their accounts :)
