Keeping an open account that you do not plan to use causes increased security concerns for your information, the website, and other people's accounts. If you want to avoid the risk but aren't sure where to start, DoNotPay is a helping hand you can count on.

Confirm the Account DeletionYou will be asked if you are sure you want to delete your account. If you confirm, your account will be deleted.

It sounds easy enough to delete an account with GoFundMe. However, as with most accounts, sometimes it is not as simple as we may hope.

What If I Cannot Delete My GoFundMe Account?

Deleting accounts should be easy. However, forgotten passwords, email accounts, phone numbers, and more can make it difficult to delete any account. GoFundMe is no exception.

The good news is, if you are unable to delete your account with Go Fund Me, you can contact a customer support team member through a live chatbox or email.

Contacting GoFundMe Via Chat or Email involves:

  1. Click "Get Help"
  2. Enter Your Question in the Box
  3. If Your Answer Isn't There, Fill Out the Form
  4. Submit Your Question Through Chat or Email

Ideally, you will have access to the email address on your account when contacting support. If this is not possible, it will be harder for support to help you. You will have to provide all emails you think your account may be listed under. It is the same information you will need if you hope to reactivate your account later.

Not having the information can drag out the amount of time it takes you to close your account. If this is a situation that you find yourself in, DoNotPay can help.
