An idea to help the world.

Recommended Posts

The title may be misleading. But this is something that I think would be great and I would happily pay for.

 

There should be a website, or app etc, which allows you to type in your e-mail, then the website/app will look up everything that e-mail is linked with. Of course you would have to prove this is your email, perhaps, ironically, from sending a verification email to a separate email.

 

The whole idea is that people can see what they're account is linked with. For example an old facebook account you may have forgotten about. I know it won't effect everyone, but for someone like me, being able to see what my email is linked with, allowing me to delete that account would be something fantastic. Also this will help people wanting to delete email accounts but are worried they will lose certain accounts such as Xbox Live.

 

Let me know what you think, if you know of such a website, let me know too :D

Hmm, that would seem like a website that would need to have an access to many other website databases, and that doesn't seem possible, I think. I mean, if not that - than I think that website would have to have all your passwords as well.

Perhaps the easiest thing is to setup email notifications at each account you matter, and if you don't use that often, you could divert all email from that account to the one you do use often, and that way you would be receiving all notifications without checking several email addresses.

Google has an add on that is called "Lightbeam" it shows where you have been on the internet, day by day or for the week or since you have used it, not quite what you are looking for but similar.

It's certainly possible, but it would be misused by spammers and would result in all sorts of annoyances.

That is true, and my idea wasn't one that was gonna happen. I just thought it would be great if it could.

 

It's not so much the notifications, I just have a slight OCD and I don't like having my email linked with accounts I don't use as it frustrates me!
