How to delete your Backupify account

Free accounts can NOT be deleted. "It should not be made too easy" (haha).

However, paid accounts can be deleted: "You can cancel your account at any time by clicking on the Cancel Account link in the payments section of the site navigation. All of your Content will be immediately deleted from the Service upon cancellation. This information can not be recovered once your account is cancelled. If you cancel the Service before the end of your current paid up month, your cancellation will take effect immediately and you will not be charged again."

So here all of a sudden it's easy to delete your account. One conclusion: customers get in easy and switch to a paid account, but cannot leave (unless they've paid).

Perhaps it helps to contact them using the form found here: https://www.backupify.com/contact

TIP anonymize your account

Because an account at Backupify 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 Backupify 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.

TIP Remove third-party logins

If you signed up for Backupify using a third-party login such as Facebook or Twitter, you probably want to revoke all access from Backupify. Click the icon below to find out how.
