If you’re looking to stop your Playstation addiction for good, then one of the best ways to do it is to completely delete your Playstation account.

You may have tried other things to end your Playstation addiction, such as deleting games or deleting profiles, and perhaps none of it works. 

You might have even searched online to find ways of how to delete your Playstation account, but all you found was how to delete profiles – which is not the same thing.

From our experience, the first and most effective step towards stopping a gaming addiction is to completely erase an account so that you can’t come back when you feel the cravings.

In this article, we’ll guide you through the process of how to delete your Playstation account so that you can begin your journey towards an addiction-free life.

How to Delete Your Playstation Account – Step By Step

The process of deleting your Playstation account is fairly simple, just follow these steps.

  1. Head over to the Playstation Support site.
  2. In the search bar right in the middle, enter “Close account” and hit enter.

  3. Next, two search results will appear based on your search. Click on “How to close your account for Playstation network”.

  4. Next, click on “Contact us” on the next page that opens. Note that you’ll need your sign-in ID and your Online ID for closing your account in the next steps.

  5. After clicking on “Contact Us”, a help page will appear where you’ll need to choose the right category for your query. You’ll need to go to Account & Security > Change Online ID & Other Account Questions.
  6. Below this tab, you’ll find a list of options for contacting Playstation support. Pick Live Chat

  7. After choosing Live Chat, you’ll need to enter some details about yourself and your account, such as your Name, PSN Sign-in ID, and PSN Online ID.

  8. Enter your information and click on “Request Chat”. You should then enter a virtual waiting room, so you might need to wait a few minutes for a chat agent to become available. NOTE: Live Chat is only open between 8 AM – 7 PM PT, so make sure you access Live Chat in that time period. Some regions also don’t offer a live chat option, so you might need to call Playstation support.
  9. When an agent becomes available, tell them you want to close your account. You might need to provide some further details, but at this point, the agent should guide you through the process.

What Happens After Deleting Your Playstation Account

After you have entered all the information and the chat agent has helped you with account closure, it might take up to a few days for Playstation to delete your account.

Deleting your account is a permanent thing, so there are a few things you should know when you close your account:

  • You won’t be able to use your account’s User ID if you decide to open a new account
  • You’ll lose access to all the content you’ve purchased on the deleted account, as well as the funds on your wallet
  • You’ll also lose access to any subscriptions you’ve made on your account.

Closing your account is the first step towards overcoming your gaming addiction. Now that you don’t have a Playstation account anymore, you’ll need to find a hobby or two to replace the time you’ve spent playing Playstation games.

In this tutorial we will help you delete your Candy Crush account and unlink Candy Crush from Facebook as well.

Candy Crush addiction is one of the most underrated addictions in the gaming industry. The game has an average of 300 million monthly users, is available for free on Facebook, through browsers, and on mobile, and is seen as a time-killing activity.

It’s the sort of game you’d play while waiting for a doctor’s appointment or on your morning commute to work. Harmless, right?

Well, not so much. Of all players, around 430.000 players play the game for six hours or longer every day, while people are spending thousands of hard-earned dollars on in-game purchases daily. 

The problem is so deep that King.com (game dev) had to testify in front of the UK Parliament because of its addictive measures.

One of the best ways to stop your Candy Crush addiction in its tracks is to delete your account completely.

Step by Step How to Delete Your Candy Crush Account

Call of Duty is one of the world’s biggest gaming franchises. Warzone, which is currently the most popular COD game, has over 100 million active players, making it one of the most played games in the world.

So in this article we will walk you through step-by-step how to delete your Call of Duty (Activision) account.

Unfortunately, it is currently not possible to fully delete your Call of Duty (Activision) account. You can, however, delete the personal information in your account and submit a request to Activision.

How to Request Personal Information Deletion on Activision

If you decide to request personal information deletion with Activision, then you’ll be deleting the information you’ve put under your account in Activision forever.

All the personal information that’s associated with your account will be deleted forever, and this process cannot be reversed. Note that because of this, you might not be able to access some or all functions of the account.

You also won’t be able to view or download personal information in the future for your account if you decide to take this step.

Please note that Activision might also not accept your request to delete your personal information if they find that your request is unfounded or repetitive.

With that in mind, let’s get into the steps of deleting your personal information from your Activision account.

  1. Log in to your Activision account, and then click on Profile in the top right corner
  2. Then go to Preferences, and scroll all the way to the bottom of your screen

  4. This should open the Privacy & Data Protection page. Once you’re there, click on “Submit a New Request”.

Deleting your Minecraft account is a relatively simple process. But it will depend on what type of account you have for playing Minecraft:

  • Mojang account
  • Microsoft account

Recently, Microsoft has been pushing towards creating Microsoft accounts for new Minecraft players. 

But if you’ve bought Minecraft a few years ago, then it’s highly likely that you still use a Mojang account and its credentials to access your Minecraft account.

In this article, we’ll show you how to delete your Minecraft account – both for Mojang and Microsoft account owners.

How to Delete Your Minecraft Account Step by Step

If You Have a Mojang Account

If you still use a Mojang account for playing Minecraft, then it’s likely that you’ve owned the game for a few years now. Still, it is easily possible to delete your Mojang account to stop playing Minecraft for good.

  1. Go to Mojang.com and log in to your Mojang account using your account’s credentials
  2. Click on “My Account” in the top-right corner, and click on “Settings
  3. Scroll to the bottom of your screen where you should see “Want to delete your account? Learn how”. Click on Learn how.
  4. Next, you’ll see a new screen that will allow you to request account deletion. To do it, click on “Request account deletion” at the bottom of the page.
  5. You should then receive an email from Mojang with further instructions to complete the deletion. Click on the activation link that’s been sent through the email.
  6. Enter your requested information to complete the account deletion, and click on Delete my account.

After that, your account should be deleted fully. You won’t be able to log back in shortly after this, as the process is irreversible.

If You Have a Microsoft Account

Microsoft accounts are more common nowadays for Minecraft users, and here’s how to delete one permanently if you’re looking to quit playing Minecraft.

  1. Sign in to Minecraft using your Microsoft account
  2. Click on “Change account settings on Microsoft.com” (also found in the Profile section)

After this, it will take 30 or 60 days (depending on what you selected) for your account to be closed. During this period, you’ll still be able to recover your account if you want, but after the 60 or 30 days are gone, the changes will be irreversible.
