In the beginning: the internet is not just fun and games
Our founders created MyDataRemoval in 2021 in response to the increased intrusion of the internet in our daily lives. The amount of information we were able to find about ourselves online was both impressive and terrifying. We realized that too many companies profit from and share our personal information. We have seen scammers profit at our friends’ and family’s expense. Our roots go back a few years in cleaning up online data for friends and family.
What we discovered: we can help
We saw a need and realized that we could help. We are real people who want to take back the internet and take control of our own data and security. We value privacy and don't want anyone and everyone to be able to find out our whole life story with a quick google search. We want you to be able to sleep well, knowing that your digital affairs are in order and that you aren't exposed online.
The internet is getting bigger: be careful
Almost all companies are becoming tech companies, capturing increasingly more data about us. The big internet companies are becoming more and more integrated into our daily lives. Many of them and their algorithms know us better than we know ourselves. Our default security practices worked great back when the internet was younger and we didn't have much to lose. But to sit back, accept the status quo, and continue with our lax security and privacy practices means we are leaving ourselves exposed.
