How to Delete Your Binance Account

Are you looking to delete your Binance account?

Maybe you want to switch your cryptocurrency to another exchange.

Or maybe you no longer want to use Binance to buy cryptocurrency.

Either way, you can delete your Binance account for safety and security reasons.

Deleting your Binance account is not so simple as the page is hard to navigate to.

Moreover, you might only see a “Disable” option and not a “Delete” option.

Next, select “Delete this account”, enter your email or phone number and click on “Confirm to delete”.

After you’ve clicked on “Confirm to delete” your Binance account will be deleted.

If your account does not have the “Delete this account” option, it means that you still have funds or cryptocurrency left in your account.

Before you can delete your Binance account, you need to make sure that you have no more funds or cryptocurrency in your account.

After you’ve clicked on “Confirm to delete”, Binance will audit your request and your total number of assets.

For your deletion request to be accepted, your account needs to have 0.001 BTC or lesser.

In some cases, you may be requested to submit certain documents, which may extend the review time.

Make sure that you do not deposit any assets in your deleted account as you might lose them.
