MySpace: How To Cancel Your Account

Posted February 15, 2009 by Rob Rogers in MySpace

If you have found that MySpace just isn’t for you, you can cancel your account. MySpace makes you go through quite a few steps to complete the cancellation process, but it is very simple to do with these instructions.

1. Go MySpace and login to your account.

2. Go to the upper-right corner, beneath the search and select My Account.

3. From the Settings menu, select Account.

4. Scroll down to the Account Cancellation section and select Cancel Account.

5. Use the appropriate radio button to select the reason for having your account cancelled and click the Cancel My Account button.

6. If a Did You Know box appears, click the No Thanks button and click the Cancel My Account button again.

7. Under Confirm Account Cancellation, input any comments and then click the Cancel My Account button.

8. An account cancellation request will be sent to your email address.

9. Upon receiving the email, click the included link to complete the cancellation process. If you have decided to keep your account at this point, simply delete the email message and don’t click the link.

10. The link will take you to the Account Cancellation page. Go down to the Confirm Account Cancellation section and click the Cancel My Account button.

You will see a page confirming that your account will be scheduled for cancellation. The cancellation process can take up to 48 hours.

    I am here because I want to delete the myspace account I created yesterday. The reason I want to cancel the acct,. is mainly because I cannot even LOG IN !!! Upon entering the log in info., the screen goes right back to the original log in screen. Very frustrating, to say the least.

    • Jessica

      I figured this out finally! Check the block senders list in your e-mail account. If you have blocked before, you will not receive the verification e-mail. Unblock the address.

      • Charity

        I have tried over 20 times to cancel my Myspace account. I never get the confirmation email. I have waited over 6 weeks and still do not have it. I checked my blocked email addresses and the is not listed so that is not my issue. Can you think of anything else that could be causing me to not get this email? Help! I hate myspace and do not want it!

I can refresh the page but then i restart witht the radio button and the process starts all over again. If typed delete my profile in the all about me portion of my profile and still nothing. What else can i do to delete my profile? I hate myspace. Nothing works the way its supposed to.

  • Kelly Bouchard

    howw do I delete my old twitter, myspace. and google accounts? ASAP?

  • Robert

    I don’t know if myspace is ignoring account cancellations now because of the mass exodus from them to facebook, but they’re not sending the email with the link out – I’ve tried twice over the last couple weeks and have gotten no response. And it’s hotmail, so yes, I’ve been checking my spam folder, too. No email at all from them.

  • Anonymous

    i want to cancel it because dats the only way to change my age

  • Lees_wife

    I need a different way to do this. I accidentally deleted the email account I had attached to my myspace. I have wrote them lots of email to get my profile canceled. They want me to take a stupid “salute” photo with a sign that has my user name. What for? So if I decide to return they can identify me later? They will not accept my State Issued ID Card as proof of who I really am. They will not take any Credit Card info to verify me either. Why must I humiliate myself for their jokes? If you have any other ideas let me know. I did post a status that says “Report this profile until myspace removes it.” 🙂

  • brenda

    can you tell me when i will get sent the email? i really want to delete my account

  • Ninny

    I am trying to delete my My Space account but the email address they sent the confirmation code to is an old Hotmail account and I cannot find it. Any suggestions? It is not the Live Hotmail one.

  • Hokuhawaii

    While waiting to get a delete confirmation email, I deleted everything on myspace. Pics, Blogs, Friends & kept it under private so no one could view it or know it was mine. You may not be able to delete your space, but you can delete everything on your myspace account & make it plain, bare and friendless!

  • Mcwaine3

    do you delete by tapping in or are you just talking about regular… I need someone to tap in

  • device2

    the cancellation process is a dog chasing it’s tail technique and the link some of you have posted just bring you back to this site. So no real answer to the problem. Thanks. Short of making Myspace crash, i really see no other solution.

  • audriana lopez

    wont let me log in

  • Confirmed today that this process still works.

  • Zonemaster89

    If you don’t receive the confirmation email or can’t access that email account, here’s what you do:

    remove all content from the profile sections
    type PLEASE REMOVE in the About Me section
    send an email to, requesting we remove the account due to the fact that you did not receive the cancellation email
    let us know that you have deleted all content, and added PLEASE REMOVE to the About Me section
    we’ll delete the account

  • Mary

    I can’t think something.

  • I have been trying to delete my account for the longest time and the new settings make it impossible to even do that. Maybe they just realized its not as popular as FB and want to keep their ppl trapped.
