Provide a service that protects people's online privacy by good faith "stalking" them in order to find whether some info that shouldn't is available for all to see.
Why?
  • Cover your tracks to avoid potential scams.
  • Ensure job recruiters are only seeing the side of you that you'd like them to.
  • Protect not only your online persona, but your real life data.
How it works:
You give an email (or emails) and your name to the service provider and they go on internet searches to see what private matters they can dig up about you. The service provider is an avid internet user. Similar to how there are good hackers that test the defenses of IT systems to report them to the owner. Or an online private investigator.
You must send an email from the email that is being checked in order to ensure it's your own. Same goes for a name, you have to confirm it somehow. Like via a verified social media profile, or you show your ID on a video call.
Good faith stalker checks for:
- Social media visability to ensure it's reserved for only the people you want to, not everyone.
- YouTube channel you use and privacy of playlists. Same goes for Twitter lists.
- Whether your internet pseudonyms and avatars can be linked back to you.
- Check for fake profiles under your likeness.
- Checking whether the emails are linked to some embarassing websites the service-user joined as a kid at the dawn of internet.
- Whether your home address is online somewhere, or phone number.
It would then deliver a .pdf report divided through platforms like Facebook, LinkedIn, with green checkmarks and red alerts for each preagreed section. It would also provide suggestion as to how to mitigate these mishaps.
I think this is a great way that gen z kids can earn money from older people.
How would one go about marketing this service?

The service could not just check but correct the potentially hazardous online information

I think it is a great idea and could be marketed like any other online service. It need not be embarrassing. After a few years, it could be similar to visiting your dentist to regularly check the health of your teeth.
It could be a platform where clients approach and want to know loopholes in their online activities that could be exploited. They could also ask for consultation on how to erase those activities. The platform could also predict how those loopholes could be exploited and provide a monetary estimate of the losses. The platform could hire freelancers who would provide the necessary services.
The platform could also develop an algorithm that quickly scans your online presence and indicates potential loopholes. Human intervention would be necessary for eliminating those loopholes.
Potential privacy and legal conflicts might arise when other websites are involved. For example, removing the "emails that are linked to some embarrassing websites".

Sure, just market it as "be in control of your digital footprint". I realized the need for this service a long time ago when I saw people share a song off of YouTube on Facebook but they would unknowingly share their entire Likes or Favourites playlist with it by accident. And you could view that they liked or favourited something that they would've liked to keep personal probably. Like a clip "how to talk to girls 101" or whatever.

I'd like an option for this service to hide any information about you, regardless of which browser is used. You should be able to filter the info about you that you want hidden such as Facebook pictures, prevent people from certain regions from viewing your stuff or entering the names of people to prevent from seeing certain information about you.

This kind of service should be pitched to celebrities and individuals who need to engage in social media extensively but do not have sufficient time to do so. However, there is a caveat: how can one ensure that the 'good faith' stalkers will indeed remain good faith over the course of time? For this, there needs to be some kind of insurance or legal agreement. I have another question: if one needs to constantly be in the loop - providing inputs, giving info on preferences and engaging actively with the service provider - why not just do it yourself?

Subash Chapagain I think they won't be providing constant inputs. It is more of a cross-sectional thing. You consult and remove the harmful prints for the past year. You see them once a year, or multiple times if required. Even if it happens frequently, users may not have time to search the internet and look for potentially hazardous content. Moreover, the service providers will be experts and could do the job much faster. They would know where to look and have the tools necessary to find dirt on the users.
Yes, that makes them potential abusers. So, legal agreement is necessary.

Shubhankar Kulkarni Subash Chapagain reputation also matters so the service provider would have to care for that. Star ratings on Fiverr or whatnot.
