How to Delete Your 1Password Account

1Password is among the best password managers that you can try. It is available for all major platforms that you can think of, including Windows, Android, and iPhone. But 1Password’s subscription is on the expensive side, especially when you see that there are multiple free alternatives available.

So, it won’t be surprising if you are considering canceling your 1Password subscription and deleting your account altogether. Here’s how you can do so.

What to Know Before Deleting Your 1Password Account

Deleting your account on 1Password will immediately erase all the information you’ve saved on the service. This includes your personal and payment information, as well as all of the passwords, 2FA logins, and notes that you’ve saved.

Unlike Facebook, where you can revive your deleted account within 30 days, your cannot log into your 1Password account once you delete it. However, you can reuse the same email you used for signing up just in case you want to create another account.

Keep in mind that this process is immediate and permanent. Make sure you want to get rid of your 1Password account for good before deleting it.

Maybe you aren’t ready to take the drastic step of deleting your account yet. If so, you might want to consider unsubscribing to 1Password first.
