Delete your data from internet browsers. It's fast and completely free.

Pick from our list of browsers, like Chrome and Safari, and easily send them deletion requests.

It's quick, simple and free.

Delete your data from your browser to protect yourself

You should delete your data from your browser because the information that they typically track and share is personal, and what happens to your data should be up to you.

Personal data that web browsers typically store:

  • Internet history
  • Passwords
  • Tastes and habits
  • Name & geolocation
  • Contact details
  • Cookies & IP address
  • Credit and debit card details
  • Economic, social and cultural information

The internet has quickly become a part of life that many of us can't live without. It's our way of connecting with friends and family, working, shopping and so much more.

As a result, our web browsers record, store and often share all of the information they glean about us from what we do online. Unfortunately, the rules around what companies can do with this simply haven't kept up with the technology.

That's where we come in. If you want to delete your search history, cookie information and more from your browser, you can send a request in under four minutes. Data made simple.

Personal data

Personal data is any information that can directly or indirectly identify you as you. Think address, beliefs, and financial records.

Send a request through Rightly to tell your web browser to delete your personal data

The easiest way to delete all of your information in one go is by sending a request through Rightly. Just pick from our list of web browsers and send a deletion request.

You can also do this manually, which you can read more about in our blog.

Wait for the company to respond

After the company has received your request, they have to reply in full within 30 days, or give a valid reason for asking for an extension. If this happens, our support team is here to help

What if they don't respond?

Don't worry - they have to respond by law. You can ask any organisation to delete your personal data, thanks to your ‘right to erasure’ under GDPR law. GDPR applies in the UK and EU.

Whether you want to delete your data from a retailer, social media, or even your local council, you can. It’s yours after all.

What if I've said that they can use my data in the past?

If you agreed to an organisation using your data but you’ve changed your mind, don’t worry! You can still ask them to delete your data.

What if I’m not sure if they have my data?

You can still ask them. If they don’t have it, they have to let you know.

Which web browser is best to use for my data in the future?

Well, there are many browsers that you could choose from! We think that privacy is incredibly important, so would recommend using DuckDuckGo. You can also read about other options here.
