How to delete your Xfire account

Removing your account is not possible. From their FAQ at http://www.xfire.com/faq/#249:

'Currently there is no User option to cancel an account. Like many other free services on the internet we do not recycle accounts.

Here's one thing you can do to protect your info before discontinuing your use of the program. In your Xfire client go to Tools | Options | Privacy tab and uncheck "Show on my profile and miniprofile." This will hide your extended profile information, gaming history and friends list from other users browsing the website.'

Uhuh... So that's how they treat your personal data at Xfire, they just tell you to hide it!

TIP anonymize your account

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