Sometimes, there is truth in advertising. Today’s case-in-point: Abine’s DeleteMe Mobile, which, as the name suggests, vigorously petitions Internet data brokers to remove personally identifying information from their databases.

Previously only available as a Web service, the app debuts on iOS with an Android version in the works. As CNET reported last year, DeleteMe is a partially human-powered service where Abine employees take on the onerous duty of contacting data brokers on your behalf. That’s an important step because many of them have been known to add your data again, just months after removing it, according to Abine’s in-house online privacy analyst, Sarah Downey.
