How to Delete Your Binance Account
You've withdrawn or transferred your coins, considered the alternatives, and have decided that disabling isn't the right option. To delete your account, follow these steps:
- Login to the Binance app or website
- Choose ‘Security’ from the profile dropdown menu
- Click on ‘Disable account’
- Choose ‘Delete this account’
- Enter your contact information
- Click ‘Confirm to delete’
Let’s take a closer look at each of these steps to answer any questions you may have.
1. Log In to the Binance App or Website
The first step to deleting your account is simple: navigate to the website or open the app on an appropriate device and log in with your correct credentials.
Once you have entered your username and password, hover or click on the profile icon at the top of the page.
2. Choose ‘Security’ From the Dropdown Menu
With the dropdown menu open, there will be several options including API Management, Reward Center, Task Center, and the Referral page. Find ‘Security’ and click on it.
3. Click on ‘Disable Account’
This menu is used for device management, Google authentication, and identity verification.
Even if you have decided to delete your account, you’ll have to first click on ‘Disable account’ to start the process (found under ‘Account Activity’ on the website). This gives you one last chance to take the other route, or easy access to quickly disable it in case of suspicious activity.
4. Choose ‘Delete This Account’
On the next page, it will give you the option to disable or delete your account. Importantly, the delete option will only appear if you are holding less than 0.001 BTC.
If it does not appear there, you likely haven’t yet prepared your account properly and should go back to make sure it is empty.
When ready, click on ‘Delete this account.’
5. Enter Your Contact Information
Since this is a permanent process and will delete all of your personal data, you will have to provide some contact information to ensure it’s actually you. Your email address or phone number will be required.
Make sure to use the number or address that is attached to the account.
6. Click ‘Confirm to Delete’
That’s it. Once you’ve clicked ‘Confirm to delete’ your account will be immediately disabled. It will take some time for the platform to manually review the deletion, to make sure that the request has been properly filed.
Now it’s time to wait for confirmation. If there is an issue, or you do not receive confirmation, contact Binance Support. Remember, this is permanent and if you ever wish to return to the platform, you’ll have to go through the process of creating an entirely new account.
