Deleting a Trello account may seem like a daunting task, but it’s actually quite simple if you follow these nine easy steps. This article will guide you through the process of permanently deleting your Trello account, ensuring that all your personal data and boards are erased from the platform.
1. Log in to your Trello account:
Visit the Trello website (www.trello.com) and enter your credentials to access your dashboard.
Locate your profile picture in the top-right corner of the screen and click on it, then select “Settings” from the dropdown menu.
3. Access your account settings:
In the settings page, click on the “Account” tab.
4. Initiate deletion process:
Scroll down to the bottom of the “Account” tab and click on the red “Delete this account?” link.
5. Confirm deletion intent:
A warning message stating that deleting your account is irreversible will appear. To proceed with the deletion, click on “Delete Account.”
6. Re-enter your password:
To verify that it’s indeed you requesting the deletion, you’ll need to enter your Trello password again.
7. Final confirmation:
Click on the red “Delete Forever” button to permanently erase your Trello account and all associated data.
8. Verify deletion emails:
After clicking “Delete Forever,” you’ll receive two emails from Trello confirming that your delete request has been successfully submitted and when it will take effect. You must pass a waiting period of almost 24 hours before considering that this necessary step is done.
9. Unsubscribe from Trello emails:
To prevent any further communication from Trello, don’t forget to unsubscribe from their mailing list or add them to the blocklist of your email client.
Congratulations! You have now permanently deleted your Trello account by following these nine steps. Remember that once your account has been deleted, all your Trello data – including boards, cards, and attachments – will be inaccessible and cannot be recovered.
