DeleteMe’s mission is simple: to remove customer’s information from search results. We believe in the right to own, manage, and remove their personal information. Since the ways companies collect, share, and sell your data is constantly changing, we strongly believe online privacy solutions must continuously improve and evolve to address these challenges. Privacy is in our DNA – it’s who we are, and what we stand for. Our founders created DeleteMe in 2010 when they realized the difficulty of navigating privacy issues in today’s interconnected and digital world. The ways in which third parties are collecting people’s information is constantly changing, and DeleteMe has continuously evolved to address these challenges for today and tomorrow. We’re real people, and we make easy-to-use tools for consumers to control what personal information companies, third parties, and other people see about them online. DeleteMe is led by a passionate team, backed by premier investment firms, and supercharged by a strong mission to empower consumers with privacy.
