How do I deactivate my account and remove its data?

Follow these steps to completely remove your data and account from Evernote.

Note: Contact Evernote Support before beginning this process if you wish to entirely remove your username and email address from our systems.


1) (if applicable) Cancel your Evernote Premium subscription. If you are paying for Evernote Premium, you will need to cancel your subscription via the service through which you subscribed. See full details about managing your subscription in this article.

2) Delete all your notes. Open your Notes list, select all notes and delete them, then select the Trash and Empty the Trash. We do not keep your information on file once you have deleted it from the system. Any data you choose to keep is your choice, for any future access should you decide to reactivate.

3) Deactivate. To deactivate your Evernote account, log in to Evernote Web and click the "Deactivate Account" link in the Settings area. You'll need to confirm the deactivation on the next page. Note that Evernote doesn't automatically delete notes when an account is deactivated.

To reactivate an inactive account, just login using the inactive username and password, then follow the instructions.
