If you’re no longer using online accounts, you should empty them and delete them. This groovyPost demonstrates how to thoroughly delete your Mint.com Account.
Being that I rarely use my Mint.com account, today, I decided to delete the account fully. Although Mint.com has a delete account feature, I will demonstrate a more thorough account deleting process to ensure all data is removed from the service.
Let’s start by removing all accounts registered with the Mint service.
Click Delete under each account.
Confirm you want to Delete the account.
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 the process by going under the Profile tab and deleting all devices and the overall account.
Scroll to the bottom of the first page and click Deactivate for each of your mobile devices/tablets.
In the 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 deletion.
You should get a popup once you complete the process, confirming your account has been deleted, and an email will be sent shortly to confirm.
In the digital age, you must 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 that it can be very effective to remove data from your accounts over the years before you delete them just in case the service or company doesn’t actually delete your account as you’ve requested.
