This may be the app you have all been waiting for. Jumbo cleans up your social media history. Delete tweets, protect your Facebook posts, delete your Google search history, delete your Alexa voice recordings. And in the future, clean up your Instagram and Tinder interactions.

For now, it's free, but there will be premium features in the future. iOS only. I mean, you would have iOS if you cared for your privacy, wouldn't you? Just kidding, Android coming soon.

Why would you trust this app?

Ich schlage vor, Du liest erst mal die Site. Dann erledigt sich die Frage.

@Hendrik - I thought the same thing initially. But the developer has created a prior legit app (Sunrise) that was well regarded (& eventually purchased by Microsoft) with no privacy issues. I installed & ran Jumbo & it runs the little web app where you log into each sites giving Jumbo permission without providing the info directly to Jumbo. Looks good to me & way easier to managing this on my own. Definitely an asset to most people who don't know or care about taking the time to manage these items on their own. I agree there's still some risk, so it's best if you take the time to do it on each site individually but to me, the risk vs value vs known info makes it worthwhile.

That's the worst grammar I've ever written publicly ever. Yes, English is my first language. Sigh.

This app makes my day, Volker! Thanks!
