Most of us have an unmanageable amount of data on our devices. But a few easy tweaks could bring it all back under control
You have Marie Kondoed your wardrobe, recycled your old newspapers and taken unwanted books to the charity shop. It may feel as if you have succeeded in decluttering your life, but then you turn on your phone or open up your laptop and find a whole load more to tidy up.
Sometimes, it gets out of control. Just this week, the snappily named European Problematic Use of the Internet Research Network warned of the dangers of cyberhoarding, an inability to delete information gathered online. Researchers werent sure whether this was a new condition or an extension of a more common offline affliction.
For most of us, though, there is hope: just a few easy tweaks (and a couple of harder ones) can help you to get your cybercollections under control.
