Exceptionally, you can also request your account closed by emailing our team. We will only close accounts via this method once we have confirmed your identity and that you are the account owner.
Note: Once an account deletion request has been completed, either by yourself or our team, it takes 72 hours before the same credentials can be used to login again and deleted accounts can not be recovered.
Using the Microsoft Privacy Compliance dashboard
**Updated Nov 15th, 2019 **
We will shortly be changing the process within the Microsoft Tech Community which means you will no longer be able to export your data or close your accounts from the Microsoft Privacy Compliance dashboard / O365 User Admin pages. The only way to do either of these tasks will be to follow the steps above.
Accounts deleted or extracts requested via this page before November 18th, 2019 will still be actioned.
