Cancel Gmail Account

Gmail, Google’s free and popular email platform, has snagged a corner on the market with its handy features and user accessibility. You can import email addresses, set up forwarded accounts, send mail from different email address and more, all from within a single inbox.

Plus, Google offers users the ability to build a rich, robust profile based on their account information, which they can leverage into powerful Google Plus platforms, use to access Google Drive and the documents within it, and more. Most people find Gmail helpful and user-friendly, but if you no longer need it, you may wish to cancel.

Unfortunately, canceling your Gmail account is harder than you might think, and even Gmail’s instructions are a little opaque. Therefore we would like to offer a simple tutorial to clear the matter up. Once you’re sure you’re finished with your Gmail account, just follow these instructions to cancel it permanently.

What You’ll Need:

  • Your Gmail account name (usually your email) and password
  • Access to a computer

Steps to Cancel Gmail:

  1. Log in to your Gmail account with your username and password.
  2. Click the “Settings” tab in the top right corner, which is marked with a gear icon.
  3. In the Settings menu, scroll down to the tab marked “Settings”.
  4. Click the “Accounts and Import” tab across the top.
  5. In the first box labeled “Change Account Settings,” click the link labeled “Other Gmail Account Settings,” which will take you to a new page.
  6. Scroll down to the very last box, with the subheading “Account Management”.
  7. Click “Delete Products”.
  8. This will take you to another page, where you can choose to cancel just your Gmail, or all the information associated with it. Choose the best option for you.
  9. Confirm that you would like to delete the account, and remember before you click that it cannot be undone!

Hopefully this tutorial regarding how to cancel your Gmail account has proven helpful. If you still need assistance, CancelWizard is happy to handle the cancellation for you. Click the handy “Use Our Cancellation Service” button and we’ll get started right away, with no extra hassle for you.

I have just taken 2 hours trying to delete my gmail account. Since I already had a google account under by main e-mail address: rockyford@shaw.ca it has been nothing but a nightmare trying to follow the instructions when what was put on the instructions did not follow on the actual documents. You say below that you do not process cancellations but in this case you better get someone on this as I do want my original e-mail back asap. I am totally discussed with the lack of true HELP and assistance. When I tried to cancel wirefox.baldwin@gmail.com to rockyford@shaw.ca it kept telling me that e-mail already existed which of course it did. I has a google account long before I thought I might try gmail. What a huge mistake!!!!
