How to Delete Your Activision Account

Deleting your Activision/Call of Duty account is challenging because you won’t be able to do it in your profile.

Instead, you’ll need to navigate to another page.

Activision has a “Privacy and Data Protection” portal where you can submit a new request.

You can also check the status of your requests in the portal.

One of the requests is for deleting your personal information.

In other words, the request is for deleting your Activision account.

This includes all personal information with your Activision account and other accounts that are linked to it.

In this guide, you’ll learn how to delete your Activision account permanently.

How to delete your Activision account
