How to Easily Delete Your GameFly Account
We all have accounts that need to be deleted, whether it's one you don't use now, an account linked to an old email address you can't access anymore, or one with a site that makes it difficult to delete. DoNotPay can help you to help protect your privacy and avoid unwanted charges.
GameFly is a mail-based video game and movie rental service. They offer a great free trial membership, making it easy to rent and buy all the video games, movies, and related products you could want, after which you'll be charged a monthly fee to use the service.
Why Would You Want to Delete Old Accounts?
Old, unused accounts can be an annoyance, and they can put your data at risk. Some reasons to include:
- Avoid membership charges or fees - especially when a free trial ends.
- Protect your data from hackers and identity theft.
- Prevent unauthorized use of your credit cards.
- Getting too much spam email from a company.
- You don't use the service anymore.
- You have a new account there.
That old account may have a linked credit card, your address, phone number, and other personal data that can be at risk of data theft.
Deleting Your GameFly Account on Your Own
To delete your GameFly account on your own, you'll need to jump through a few hoops to get there. If you haven't already canceled your GameFly membership, you'll want to do that first.
How to Cancel Your GameFly Membership
Before you attempt to delete your GameFly account, you'll want to make sure you've canceled your membership. To do so, you'll need to open the website or app and:
- Sign in to your GameFly account — assuming you know your username and password
- Navigate to the "My Account" page
- Choose the "Change My Membership" link on your account page
- Choose the "Cancel Membership" link
- Wait for a confirmation email that your request has been received.
- Click or tap the cancellation confirmation link in that email to finalize your cancellation
- Return any games or movies you rented and haven't yet returned
What if You Don't Have Your GameFly Account Information?
If you don't have your username and password for your GameFly account, you can try to reset it. If you don't have access to that email account anymore, you'll need to send GameFly customer support an email message from a different email account. For security reasons, though, they probably cannot take action for you since your request is coming from a different account. If they can help, you may need to send them a copy of your photo ID, such as a driver's license or other proof that you are the account holder for the membership you want to cancel.
How to Completely Delete Your GameFly Account
Now that you've (hopefully) successfully canceled your membership, you'll want to delete your account entirely. Deleting your account (not just canceling a membership) is important because it should erase your personal information from their system. Deleting your information can help protect you from data and identity theft and unauthorized credit card access, and other risks.
