How to delete your iTunes account

There is no direct link for deletion. It is often smart to deactivate (disable) your iTunes account, since it's linked to the possibility to use the items you once purchased (due to DRM. See also http://www.iskysoft.com/article/remove-drm-protection-from-itunes.html).

It is possible to delete (cancel) your account, too. For this, contact Apple (mail or telephone) and request deletion. Use this link:
http://www.apple.com/support/itunes/contact/

You will be guided through something called 'Express Lane'. Since the options change on a regular basis, choose the options that suit your request best. At the end of the line you will be able to fill out the contact form and request removal. At this point you are asked (as was told to us) that you need to make a phone call. Ask for the Account Security Team and explain your request. In the end however, it remains unclear to us whether your account will really be deleted. Beforehand, you could log in and change/anonimise your personal data.

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 iTunes and ask personally. By the way, deletion requests don't necessarily mean your data will actually be deleted (e.g. due to legal obligations).

TIP Remove third-party logins

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