Pubcleaner is a tool that deletes your old posts on federated social networks like Mastodon or Pleroma.

Why it is useful

On a federated network other servers save copies of your posts in order to provide them to their users. But most ActivityPub-compatible software does not automatically delete their copies after some time, therefore a server might still have copies of your posts after your profile has already been deleted and is long gone.

This tool makes sure the server you are registered on sends out individual Delete requests for each of your posts.

How to use it

There a no public builds available yet, but you can build it yourself:

git clone
cd pubcleaner
cargo run

Pubcleaner will interactively ask your for your servers’ parameters, if you do not specify arguments.
