How to delete your Microsoft Live account

Your Microsoft account will be deactivated for a year, then deleted. Within this period you could reactivate it.

For closing your complete Microsoft account, there is a different link, see the MSN entry on this site: http://www.accountkiller.com/en/delete-microsoft-account

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