How To Delete Any Pixiv Account In Seconds
Like Instagram accounts, artists use Pixiv accounts to share their artworks with millions of people online. While the website is based in Japan, it still attracts 50 million users worldwide. It's relatively easy to sign up, but many users don't know how to .
Inactive social media accounts don't just attract unwanted spam to your email address. Unused accounts are easily accessed by hackers, who can steal your credit card or banking information. If you're no longer using a Pixiv account, let DoNotPay help you delete it.
How Can I Delete My Pixiv Account?
Pixiv says that anyone is free to by following these steps:
- Visit the 'Leave Pixiv' page.
- Enter your password.
- Confirm your request.
It seems simple, but many people can't locate the 'leave Pixiv' page because it's buried in customer support articles. You can't delete your account from your settings page or profile.
If you've forgotten your password, you won't be able to delete your account until you request a new one. It usually isn't too much of a problem, but it can extend the whole deletion process.
The new password will be sent to the email address associated with your account. If that email address is defunct (or you don't remember the password.), you'll have to contact Pixiv support for more help.
You also have to wait at least two weeks for the deletion request to be processed. During that time, you won't be able to use your email address to make a new account. You may also still see unwanted emails from Pixiv in the meantime.
Deleting your Pixiv can also be confusing because Pixiv manages multiple websites. Even if you deactivate your Pixiv account, your information will remain on FANBOX and BOOTH (if you signed up with Pixiv). DoNotPay also has a Manage Subscriptions product to help you keep track of these accounts.
