How To Delete Your Accounts: 65 Services and Sites From Adobe To Zynga
As technology crept into our daily lives these past years, we availed of a lot of services that helped us become more productive, especially in this internet connected world.
I remember when I first started surfing the world wide web, I could not help but sign up for all the services and subscriptions that were offered, especially if it was free.
Soon enough, I found myself with so many accounts to monitor, and so many emails received from these tech providers, that I had to do a regular spring cleaning of my internet accounts.
Not surprisingly, these service tech providers make it so easy for us to sign up, but make it an ordeal to cancel or delete these account subscriptions.
It only takes an email address and a few clicks to sign up, but many tech accounts require a ?chat? with a live person in order to delete the account, supposedly to protect us from ?hackers? who would want to delete our subscriptions (now who would want to go through all the trouble to do that!)
These tech services also make it difficult for us to locate email addresses (if they even provide one), telephone numbers, or support sites, once we decide that we want to stop using a certain tech service.
Fortunately, there are good Samaritans, particularly Doug Aamoth, from Time.com, who compiled a list of telephone numbers, site links, and steps, on how to delete a good number of tech services from A to Z, in this case, from Adobe to Zynga.
These links, as advised by Doug Aamoth of Time.com, will hopefully assist you in getting that unwanted tech service deleted. Some steps, Mr. Aamoth adds, may not be as easy as others, as some tech services absolutely require you to talk to a living and breathing contact center agent. To help you a bit, the list contains the direct telephone numbers of the tech service so you would not be asked to press numerous numbers just to reach the right person. Thank you Mr. Aamoth, from the bottom of our hearts.
The site links provided by Doug Aamoth, may not all be a click away to ?service termination?, but it will surely help you get one step closer to the task at hand.
For the original article and list by Doug Aamoth at Time.com, please scroll to the end of the article. After the link, I am also sharing a video from Mr. Aamoth. He has a handy video to help you look up accounts you may have, but have forgotten all these years.
