If you’re an Xbox user and you’re looking to delete your account, you’re in the right place. In this article, we’ll provide you with step-by-step instructions on how to delete your Xbox account.

Before we begin, it’s important to note that deleting your account is a permanent action. Once your account is deleted, you will lose all of your saved data, including your game progress, your Xbox Live membership, and your Xbox achievements.

Step 1: Sign in to your Xbox account

The first step to deleting your Xbox account is to sign in to your account on the Xbox website. Once you’ve signed in, click on the “My Account” button in the top right corner of the page.

Step 2: Navigate to the account closure page

From the “My Account” page, click on the “Security & Privacy” tab. On the next page, scroll down and select “Account Closure.”

Step 3: Confirm your identity

Before you can proceed with deleting your account, you will need to confirm your identity. Xbox may ask you to enter a verification code, send you an email, or ask you to sign in again.

Step 4: Provide a reason for account closure

Once you’ve confirmed your identity, Xbox will ask you to provide a reason for your account closure. This is optional but may help Xbox improve their services in the future.

Step 5: Verify and delete your account

Finally, Xbox will ask you to confirm that you want to delete your account. Make sure you read the information on the page carefully before proceeding. Once you’ve confirmed that you want to delete your account, click on the “Mark account for closure” button.


Deleting your Xbox account is a straightforward process, but it’s important to understand that it’s a permanent action. If you’re unsure if you want to permanently delete your account, consider deactivating it instead. Deactivating your account will allow you to reactivate it at a later time if you change your mind.
