Questions & Answers

What happens when I delete my account?

Deleting your Google account means that you will no longer be able to use any of the Google services, and your account and data will be lost. You could also lose access to services outside of Google where you use your email address. For example, if you use the email address as a recovery email for your bank account, you may have difficulty resetting your bank password. If you proceed, you'll need to update your email address everywhere you use it outside of Google.

Can I just Delete the services attached to my account?

Yes. Navigate to the same section of your account preferences page and choose "delete products"- Here you will be able to choose which google products you would like to delete without deleting your entire account. Click here for more details.
