How to Easily Delete Your YouNow Account
One of the biggest cybersecurity risks in your private life is unused accounts. These accounts contain personal information, your email address, maybe even your favorite password - all waiting unmonitored for a hacker to come along. Whether they steal your account or just your data, this is why it's a good idea to delete old accounts when you're done with them.
Platforms like YouNow pose an additional risk of audience members trying to follow your stream into your real life. If you have a YouNow account that is lying dormant, or has even become toxic to your life, it's time to delete the account and walk away. But how do you if you forgot the password, lost the email, or - worse - your account has already been hacked? DoNotPay can help you delete any account, anywhere, even if the automated systems don't work for you.

What to Do if Typical Account Deletion Doesn't Work
If following these steps doesn't work, you will need to contact YouNow customer service. They have a generic service form that can be filled out on their ZenDesk help site.
Head over to Submit a Request to access the service request form. Enter your YouNow account email address and your current YouNow username. Inexact usernames will result in a delay in services.
Select "Other", from the drop-down because account issues are not listed. Then outline your desire to delete your account and why for the YouNow admins to deal with when they have time. You may hear back in the next few days or weeks about deleting your account.

Issues You Might Run Into Deleting Your YouNow Account
The one big problem with deleting your YouNow account is that you need to be logged in to do it. If you have lost access to your YouNow login credentials, this can make deletion - and even account management - impossible.
Can't Log In to YouNow to Delete My Account
If you can't log in, you can't delete your YouNow account. Did you forget your password but still have access to the email? Use the password recovery route. If you no longer have access to the email you made the YouNow account with, you'll need to make a special service request with the Submit a Request form to reclaim your account and change your recovery email. Once you can log in again, you can delete your account the normal way.
Technical Difficulties are Preventing Me from Deleting My YouNow Account
Sometimes, an online tool just doesn't work. If you have selected to Terminate your account and nothing happens, this is a website error. You'll need to send in a bug report and make a special request before your account can be deleted.
Someone Hacked My YouNow Account
Hacks are a serious problem on social sites, especially sites like YouNow where popularity is key and upset viewers can take unfriendly actions. If you can't access your YouNow account with credentials you know are correct, this might mean you've been hacked. Especially if your account is taking action without you. You will need to contact YouNow support to change the email and password back under your control (and make a new password) before you can use or delete your YouNow account.
