Home delivery services have become incredibly popular in recent years, and DoorDash is one of the few companies that can deliver almost anything. While handy, it’s an app some use sparingly, so you might be wondering how to delete your DoorDash account permanently.

Canceling a subscription to DoorDash is simple, but different than completely deleting your data. When you want to remove your information from the company, you’ll need to take a few additional steps. We’ll walk you through that process and also tell you how to cancel DashPass, the company’s subscription-based service.

How to Delete a DoorDash Account Permanently

The first thing you need to know about deleting an account with DoorDash is that you can’t do it from within the app. It doesn’t matter whether you’re using Android or iOS because your account options are limited by the mobile app.

Step 1: Log in to DoorDash

Open up a web browser and go to the company’s official site, DoorDash. Click on the Sign In prompt at the top right-hand of the page. From here, enter your account details or log in to your DoorDash through Google, Facebook, or Apple.

When you are logged in, look on the left side of the screen towards the top for three dashes. Click on those to open up a drop-down menu where you’ll see a section that says Account with your name. Click on that tab to continue.
