Marquee image for How to Cancel Your Account

You can cancel your account at any time. Please note that when you cancel your account, any uninvoiced balance remaining on your account will be charged to your account’s credit card. If you have any positive credit on your account at time of cancellation, then that credit will be used to pay for your uninvoiced balance.

  1. Log into Cloud Manager.
  2. Click the Account link in the sidebar.
  3. On the right of the page, select the Close Account link.
  4. A confirmation form will appear. Enter your Linode username in the first field and enter any comments you’d like to leave in the second field.
  5. Click the Close Account button to complete your account cancellation.

Your account will be cancelled and all of your services will be deactivated.

You do not have to cancel your account to prevent recurring charges. Instead, you can remove all Linodes and services from your account via the Linodes tab in the Cloud Manager. This will allow you to retain your Linode account. If you use Longview with non-Linode services, or want to keep your account name and history, you may find this to be a useful option. See Removing Services for more information.
