How to Delete Hotmail Account Permanently

By Sidharth | How-to

Windows MSN provides a way to delete hotmail account from the “help” section, which I thought was a pretty straight-forward procedure. However, after going through a rigorous search, investing couple of hours, I wasn’t able to find any button to close my Hotmail account.

After a while searching on the Internet I found a way for deleting hotmail account permanently. All I had to do was log in to my account.

Note that once you delete the account of Live MSN hotmail, you will lose the emails and important data, so make sure you think twice before proceeding any further.

Deleting Hotmail account

Update: Please visit the new and updated page on deleting Hotmail account, which involves a two step process to permanently get rid of your Hotmail email address.

delete_hotmail

Check out the Close hotmail account page to permanently delete your Hotmail account. Also make sure you do not log in to Hotmail for the next 30 days 270 days for the account deletion process to complete. If you do sign in, your Hotmail account will be reactivated and all the emails will be restored again!

I have tried all the above ways to close my hotmail acc. Nothing has worked and all I get are websites that are no longer working. I’m tired of all the unwanted sex emails I’m receiveing from people all over the world that I’ve never heard of. Please cancel all hotmail to my email address.

    To delete ur hotmail go to the top right corner where it shows ur name and on the black arrow pointing down “click” on that, then click on “view ur account”…a page should now pop up showing information about ur hotmail…scroll down to where it says “additional options” and there should be something that says “close account” click on that…now on this page…scroll down where it should say “Verify your identity to close your account:” where it says password, type in your password then click on the button that says “yes” click and click on that…then its deleted…if nothing seems to be working…read the above information to see why it doesnt work…GOOD LUCK…

      THANK YOU! This was so helpful. It was step-by-step instructions that were easy to follow and were very beneficial. After typing close account, remove account, delete account, etc. in the help section of Hotmail, I was still unable to get a link to close my account. But reading your thread was a tremendous help. THANKS AGAIN!
