I have some important information on a particular website that I accidentally left there. I need this information to be taken down as soon as possible so that it does not get into the hands of the wrong people. Could someone please tell me how this could be done? Do you know of any software that is capable of combing the web and removing this important information?
How to Remove Sensitive Information from a Website
This is a very vague question. It is not clear if you are the previous owner of the website and you want your information to be removed or it is only a user information you left from some website. If you are the previous owner of the website, you can contact your former web hosting site and ask them to remove all your private information.
But I know, when someone purchased your website, any sensitive information associated to you is not disclosed to the new owner. This is for privacy and of course for security as well. But if you are only asking for the information you left in some website, the easiest way to do it is to go to the website and sign in to your account.
Once logged in to your account, delete all the information related to you like personal address, telephone number, mobile number, email address, bank account number, social media accounts, and others. In case you can no longer sign in to your account, you can contact support and ask the support personnel to delete your user account since you can no longer access it.
