How Do I Find My Unused Accounts Online?

Ask a Geek Girl: Finding Unused Profiles

Since we've started the Ask a Geek Girl group, we've received a wide range of questions to be pondered over and have been collectively solved by the geek masses. This question, coming in from villagirl, realizes she's probably over done it on signing up for every new social networking site, since now she barely uses any of them (except for Teamsugar, of course!):

Does anyone know of a website where one can type in their email and see all of the things that they are signed up for? I've signed up for lots of random stuff that I'm just not interested in anymore. Help!

And although I love answering all of your questions, Teamsugar user jdots24 had a few awesome suggestions of her own. To find out what they were, just read more.

Jdots24 uses a number sites that scour the Internet to find not only her name, but email addresses that she used to sign up for various sites saying, "None of them are perfect, but there are a few like yoname, peekyou, spock, ex.plode, and wink."

I tried all of Jdots24's suggestions myself, and the one that came up with the most results for me was YoName. With a massive search that brings back info from a ton of different websites including Blogger, YouTube, Twitter, and Myspace, it seems that even I have a bunch of outdated accounts floating around out there that could stand to be deleted! Way to serve up the great advice, Geek Girls! Lets keep it up!
