How to Delete a Cash App Account in 7 Steps (With Photos)

Since its launch in 2013, Cash App has developed into one of the most well-known peer-to-peer payment and mobile banking apps available. But not everyone can benefit from Cash App, and if your money requirements have increased beyond what the app can offer, you might be asking how to permanently deactivate your account. Here’s how you can delete a Cash App account in less than 10 minutes!

Before You Delete a Cash App Account

Before you delete your account, there are some things you ought be aware of. To begin with, if you delete the account, it is irreversible. There isn’t a temporarily disable option like there is on other sites. So if you have money in this account, now is the time to transfer it.

Your #Cashtag, account history, and related account data are permanently destroyed when you delete your account. You can open another account later, but Cash App is going to treat it exactly the same as an entirely new account. However, your account history is permanently removed only for you for a specific period of time. According to Cash App, because they are a financial institution, the law requires they keep transaction data and account documentation for up to seven years.

Finally, as there is no way to access this data once the account has been deleted, you might want to download your Cash App account history before deleting your account, just in case you need this information in the future.

Can You Delete Cash App Payment History?

At this time, no. You can’t remove your Cash App payment history while keeping your account active. If you want to remove the transaction history connected to your account, you’ll need to delete the whole account.
