How to delete your Amazon account

Amazon has had its fair share of controversies, particularly about data collection and how the retail giant treats its workers. If you’ve decided that easy access and quick deliveries aren’t worth the price anymore, here’s how to delete your Amazon account:

  • Go to https://www.amazon.com/privacy/data-deletion.
  • Make sure to read which Amazon services you won’t have access to after you delete your account.
  • Check “Yes, I want to permanently close my Amazon Account and delete my data.”
  • Hit close my account.
  • Check your text messages or emails for a notification from Amazon.
  • Click on the confirm account closure link.
  • Enter your password.
