How to delete your Apple-id account

Unfortunately, your Apple ID is here to stay. Forever. Please have a look at this discussion: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4587756?start=0&tstart=0

One of our users reported, though, that it's possible to have your account deleted by contacting Apple by phone.

He writes:

I found a way to delete your Apple ID. You just have to call the Account Security Team!

Apple "security team" for Belgium in Dutch: 070 700 772. The US number is: 1-800-275-2273

It might be also possible to have an account removed from a deceased person by supplying a death certificate.

If everything fails, try to contact them via: http://www.apple.com/support/appleid/contact/

TIP anonymize your account

Because an account at Apple-id cannot be deleted, we suggest to make your data useless.

Be logged in on the site, then go to Profile Settings (Or Options, etc.). In all fields with personal data (such as name, address, city), fill in AccountKiller, if possible. If you can only choose from several options, change the value. If possible, use a homepage/URL field or long text field (such as Description) and put this line in it: https://www.accountkiller.com/removal-requested. This may incite webmasters to add an account deletion option.

TIP good to know

Publicly visible text/images often aren't properly deleted even when you succeed in deleting an account. Try editing or deleting them manually before deleting the account itself. If you're unsure what happens to your tracks: this can be found mostly in the Terms of Service/Privacy Policy; otherwise you can always contact Apple-id and ask personally. By the way, deletion requests don't necessarily mean your data will actually be deleted (e.g. due to legal obligations).

If you can't find any contact info and still wish to ask something, for example a question about what exactly is deleted, about data retention, etc., you may contact the domain owners using this info.
