How to Delete a Step Banking Account
Step Banking offers teenagers the opportunity to manage their finances. The account owner puts an amount into the account and can be spent. Unlike a secured card, no one makes monthly payments. If the amount is cleaned out, the card is useless until the account's funded again.
These are temporary accounts developed specifically for young people between 13 and 18. When the teenager ages out, the account is no longer viable.
At the end of its use, the likelihood is that account holders will close the account. Users may not know learning does not remove it from servers and further access. What you need to do is delete the account.

Reasons to Delete Your Step Banking Account
It's important to remember the distinction between closing an account and deleting one.
- Closing only means you no longer want to use the account. It will stop payments. It might even briefly stop notifications. (Many companies will push to get you to come back, won't they?)
- Deleting the account ensures your information gets removed.
You also want to keep in mind inactive accounts are security risks, far more susceptible to data breaches as companies may not protect them as current accounts. Completely removing an account is the sensible route.
Deleting Step accounts that are no longer in use is the only way to protect your personal information. Remember, even if you close the account, the company still has, at the very least:
- Your name and address
- The names of any children you have on the account
- A photograph if they asked for one or you (or the child) chose to upload one
- Financial information (bank account, debit, or credit card)

The best option is to let DoNotPay do the legwork.
