By Leo Notenboom

How do I block people from finding me and information about me on
the internet? I want to erase myself from the internet. How do I stop
my name and my information from showing when people google me or search
for me on the internet?

This is, sadly, an extremely common question. I say sadly, because
the answer is both disappointingly complex, and ultimately
unattainable.

The short answer is very, very simple…
