How to remove your ESPN account

It seems that you cannot delete your profile. You can, however, deactivate it. This means that the profile becomes inaccessible, however, what happens to your personal data is unclear. We suggest that you change all your personal details into nonsense, and then take the following steps to deactivate your account:

1. Make sure you are logged in to your account. Then click on your username (top right of the screen).
2. Click the ‘Edit Profile’ tab.
3. Check the ‘deactivate’ box at the bottom of the form.
4. Click ‘save changes’ to deactivate your profile. It can take up to 5 minutes before the changes to be effective.



Helpful Trick: Removing online data

Publicly visible text/images often aren’t properly removed even when you succeed in removing an account. Try editing or removing them manually before removing the account itself. If you’re unsure what happens to your tracks: this can be found mostly in the Terms of Service/Privacy Policy; otherwise you can always contact ESPN and ask personally. By the way, removal requests don’t necessarily mean your data will actually be removed (e.g. due to legal obligations).
