How To Delete Your Mint.com Account

delete your mint.com account

Being┬áthat I rarely use my Mint.com account, today I decided to fully delete the account. Although Mint.com has a delete account feature, I’m going to demonstrate a more thorough account deleting process to ensure all data is removed from the service.

Let’s start off by removing all accounts registered with the Mint service.

Click Accounts

click accounts

Click Delete under each account.

click delete - delete mint account

My profile contained three accounts I had to delete. Be sure to nuke all of them.

 

Confirm you want to Delete the account.

type delete - delete mint account

Once it’s gone it’s gone… Be sure you want to do this before clicking delete!

 

Once all your accounts have been deleted from your profile, Mint.com will be reset as if you have a new account.

Let’s finish off the process by going under the Profile tab and deleting all devices and the overall account.

Click Profile

click profile - delete mint.com

Scroll to the bottom of the first page and click Deactivate for each of your mobile devices/tablets.

Final step, click Delete Your Mint Account and then click YES, delete my Mint Account.

Enter your PW and click Finish to complete the account delete.

You should get a popup once you complete the process which confirms your account has been deleted and an email will be sent shortly to confirm.

Ahh…. I feel better already!

 

In the digital age it’s important you keep track of accounts you’ve created and delete the ones you’re no longer using, especially financial accounts and services like Mint.com. I’ve also learned over the years it can be very effective to remove data from your accounts before you delete them just in case the service or company doesn’t actually delete your account like you’ve requested.

    Anyone who would give a web site their banking info is crazy.

    Congrats on coming to your senses Steve. ;)

    Did Mint “actually” delete your account and stop charging you when you did this? I deleted my account with them online after following the steps outlined on their help page and received an email confirming that my account had been cancelled, yet they have continued to charge me every month for the service. I filled out a contact form on their website about the issue but never heard anything so I called customer service and was told that there is no way to delete an account online. I directed customer service to the link (mint.com/help) where the instructions are STILL posted on how to delete an account online, but the best answer I could get was that I *might* get a refund depending on what the billing department says.

    These guys are the worst. Thanks so much for your page so I could delete my account.
    Ever effort before, through support, emails etc (over many months) has done nothing.
