How to delete a WordPress account?

If you want to permanently remove your WordPress account, you’ll notice 1 thing after a while: a wordpress account itself can never be deleted (it’s for your own security).

BUT: If there are several admins on a WordPress blog (or if you create a dummy admin), he/she can delete your profile from the WordPress so you have nothing to do with it anymore.

We’ll show you how it’s done:

 1  Let the 2nd user (or dummy user you created) log in

by going to http://www.[yoursite].com/wp-login.php and entering the current username and password.

 2  Users > All users

is what needs to be selected now in the WP dashboard menu.

 3  Delete

You can’t delete yourself when you’re logged in, but a dummy or other user can click now on the Delete button.
