Frequently Asked Questions
yourself.online is an online service to manage your privacy and persona across the web. We find information about you across the internet, social media accounts, and data resellers. We gather the information found, analyze it, and then generate a dashboard with recommendations and tools to make changes.
The information you’ve shared over decades across different sites is now being used by organizations to make decisions about who you are, without your knowledge. Employers, Banks, and Insurers are now using this information to make decisions about who you are. It’s time to clean up those old posts and photos, change your privacy settings, and take control of your data, so it is yourself online.
yourself.online was founded by two ex-Google employees in 2018 who saw how consumers needed help to manage their privacy and online content. We’re building a company that’s founded on trust, transparency, and privacy from the ground up. We’re a paid service, and we only use your data to provide the service to you.
In case you’re still concerned, we’re a team of real people sitting in offices in Austin, USA, and London, UK, and you’re always welcome to call us on (US) 512 961 8558 or (UK) 020 7193 8292. We’d be more than happy to speak to you.
Our current release has three valuable features:
