A GDPR app I'd love to see

Am receiving loads of emails from services I don't even remember I've subscribed to, because of GDPR crazyness.

The app would scan my inbox (or spam) for such emails and will show me a link where I can delete my user from the related service.

EDIT --

I found what I'm looking for. It's JustDeleteMe http://backgroundchecks.org/justdeleteme/

It'd be great an app that searches your email for all services that sent you a GDPR email and connects with JustDeleteMe to easily show you the "delete account" button, so one doesn't have to hunt it.

    A summary list of unsubscribe links?

      Kind of.

      The part it's missing is the "scan my email to find all of those services".

      Mmm... this is for "unsucribe". What I mean is to "delete account".

      Fantastic service anyway! Thanks!

    I think that they are sending that because they need to you opt-in once again in order for them to continue emailing you. If you don't do that, I think they can't send you anymore messages

      Yeah, sure. But most services I don't use anymore. And they make it hard to find the "Delete my Account" button

        Should always be in their Privacy Policy, paragraph "right to deletion". If not, you might have to send them an email.

      Depending on the country they might have a legal obligation to let their users know that they've updated their Privacy Policy so they can't just make changes haphazardly and get away with sneaky behavior.

      Getting the emails is annoying... but the alternative (no data privacy regulation) is worse.
