How to Write Email to Delete an Online Account

Hello, guys I hope you guys found useful information in my first post on this site about how to compose a mail to terminate an account. So let’s speak about how to create a message, but first we’ll talk about why we need mail and how to stop spam from ruining our mailbox.

We occasionally receive a large amount of messages on our google, yahoo, or email accounts from social networking firms or online retailers informing us of their latest upgrades or products. We try to disable their notice or completely delete their account from their database because these emails occasionally irritate us because they merge with our business mail.

If you are unhappy with their emails, click the small unsubscribe button at the bottom of each one to stop receiving them. However, if you have made the decision to delete your account, the application is below; you must send it to their customer service team.

Here is a Sample on How to Write a Mail to Delete An Online Account

SUBJECT: Request To Delete My Account From Your Database

Dear (Company Name) Team,

I have an account in your database with the name ……………. and the email address that is linked to the account is ………………..
Meanwhile, for some reasons, I have decided not to use the account again, therefore I request that you kindly delete my account from your database and also wipe all notifications if any.

From:
Your Name.
Email Account.
Phone Number.

NOTE: The name, email address and phone number that will be contained in the mail must be linked to the account you want to delete. This will evidence that you are the real owner of the account.

Meanwhile, if you mobile number is not linked to the account, there will be no need of you adding any phone number.

See the sample below:

Account deletion process:

The deletion process normally consist of following steps:

  • REQUEST: A user who wishes to delete their account/data may have to submit an account deletion request.
  • VALIDATION: Their support team member may have to cross-check your information with their internal database. If data matches, they will initiate the deletion process and notify you that the deletion has started.
  • DELETION: At this level, all the records of your account will be deleted.
  • FINAL NOTIFICATION: Now, once the deletion process has been deleted, they will notify you that your account has been successfully deleted.

NOTE ALSO

Some websites simply do not allow you to delete your account. At all. Many websites now sell user information or incorporate user information into their business practices. What you may find is that instead of allowing you to delete an account, some services instead only let you delete your personal information on the site, while the account itself (including the username and password) are maintained in the system.

To note, this is legally allowed in the US. While all US businesses must offer at least two avenues to identify and delete account information—one of which must be a toll-free number—US businesses do not have to delete the account itself. Instead, businesses are allowed to de-identify and aggregate your personal information.

Some major companies and sites which do not allow account deletion include:

  • Barnes and Noble
  • Gawker Media websites (Lifehacker, Gizmodo, Kotaku, etc.)
  • Kik
  • Netflix
  • Steam
  • Wikipedia
  • YouTube
  • WordPress
  • Starbucks
  • Playstation Network
  • Pinterest

There’s more, of course. And many, many others do allow account deletion but make it incredibly difficult to delete your account by employing strict and notably annoying user retention methods

Why You Must Delete Your Old Online Accounts

If you have old online accounts, you’ve likely had your information stolen in a past data breach, at a minimum. While nearly half of the US was impacted by the Equifax breach, many online users likely lost their name, email address, phone numbers, and even SSNs in smaller, lesser-reported data breaches over the years. And for many people, that data loss is likely tied to older online accounts, many of which were long forgotten.

A major concern with old accounts is also credential stuffing. This occurs when hackers use leaked data breaches to attempt to login to other websites. This process is fairly automated, and hackers will use username and password combinations across a number of sites to determine which ones work.

Know More About Credential Stuffing

Credential stuffing is a type of cyberattack where stolen account credentials typically consisting of lists of usernames and/or email addresses and the corresponding passwords are used to gain unauthorized access to user accounts through large-scale automated login requests directed against a web application.

Unlike credential cracking, credential stuffing attacks do not attempt to brute force or guess any passwords – the attacker simply automates the logins for a large number (thousands to millions) of previously discovered credential pairs using standard web automation tools like Selenium, cURL, PhantomJS or tools designed specifically for these types of attacks such as: Sentry MBA, SNIPR, STORM, Blackbullet and Openbullet.

Credential stuffing attacks are possible because many users reuse the same username/password combination across multiple sites, with one survey reporting that 81% of users have reused a password across two or more sites and 25% of users use the same password across a majority of their accounts.
