How to Delete WayUp Account Profiles
WayUp was designed to help college students, recent graduates and entry-level employees connect with companies to find internships and jobs. You've landed the perfect job though, so what should you do with your old WayUp account? Career and employment websites collect a lot of personal information and resumes that contain your name, address, educational history and even job history.
If the account is old and sits unmonitored, it becomes even more of a security risk for a data breach. The type of sensitive information you may have in an employment-related account is valuable to hackers. For instance, have you ever used your alma mater or your first job as a security question for other accounts? Instead of letting your information remain on an old account, learn profiles quickly.
