Delete your Crunchyroll account
Before detailing the process of deleting your account, we would like to explain one confusing thing about this process. Crunchyroll actually doesn’t have a dedicated “Delete Account” option in the settings or anywhere on its website.
However, the streaming company offers a “Account deactivation” page which, well, does not deactivate your account. Instead, it actually deletes your account forever. If you follow the instructions below to deactivate your Crunchyroll account, it will not be reactivated again. Your account will be gone forever, so only read on if you’ve made up your mind.
With that out of the way, follow these steps to delete your Crunchyroll account on your Windows, macOS, or Linux desktop or laptop computer:
1. First, go to the Crunchyroll website and log in with your credentials. Then go to Crunchyroll account deactivation page through the link here. You won’t be able to access this page anywhere in the settings, so you’ll have to rely on the link we’ve attached.
2. You can choose one of the listed reasons for deactivating your account and enter any additional reasons in the field below. Next, type your password for confirmation before clicking “Deactivate now” button.
3. After clicking on the deactivation button, you will see a pop-up window asking you for final confirmation to delete your account. The message in the pop-up window reminds you that “you cannot CANCEL this!” action Once you click OK, your Crunchyroll account will be deleted.
4. When your process is complete, you will see a notification that says “Your account has been deleted” at the top of the homepage. Yes, the account was deleted and not deactivated, as the support page might lead you to believe.
