How to Delete Your Paytm Account Easily
Paytm is one of the most popular payment apps in India. It can be used as a virtual wallet and a quick mobile payment solution for almost any service with digital payment. You can transfer funds into and out of your Paytm account and use it on the go. Of course, financial management methods change and Paytm app payments are currently still only available in India.
If you are done with Paytm or find you no longer use the app, you'll want to close out and delete your Paytm account. This is a simple matter of financial and data security. No one should leave an unmonitored payment account active with your personal and banking information attached. All it takes is one phone thief or accomplished hacker to jeopardize your finances. Paytm handles everything inside the app, including account deletion. But if it's been a while and you can no longer log into the app, your account still exists and DoNotPay can help you have it properly and safely deleted.
How to Delete Your Paytm Account Through the App
Log Into Your Paytm App Account
First, log into your Paytm account through your phone. Use your existing or original phone number and password if you still have them.
Transfer Any Remaining Funds to Your Bank
If there are any funds remaining in your Paytm account, be sure to transfer them before you initiate account deletion. This will allow a clean break and ensure you don't lose any money in the process. Have your funds transferred to another service or back to your bank.
Navigate to Profile Settings Account Deletion
- Select the Hamburger Menu in the upper left corner
- Choose 24/7 Help
- Scroll to 'Profile Settings'
- Select 'I need to permanently close/delete my account'
- Choose 'I don't use this Paytm account'
- Unless you are having another issue and don't really want to close your account.
- All other options are requests for account solutions instead
Choose to Delete Your Account
Tap 'Message Us' and write a small explanation for why you are deleting your account. You can also simply state that you want the account deleted. However, you will find yourself talking to customer service either way.
Reassure Customer Service
Paytm will respond to your request with a chat exchange offering account solutions, instead. They believe strongly in resolving issues rather than deleting accounts, so you will need to spend a few minutes reassuring customer service that you are sure that account deletion is what you want.
Confirm your Account Closure
When the conversation is done, triple-confirm that you want to close your account and admins will begin the process of deleting your account and personal data.
Can I Delete With — Yes/No
How to Delete Your Paytm Account If You Can't Log In
Paytm does absolutely everything through the app. If you can't log into your old account because you lost your phone number or forgot your password, the only way to get help is actually still through the app. You may, for example, need to make a new account to reach the customer service portal to have both the old account and the new account deleted. A bit of a hassle? Yes. That is part of why DoNotPay offers a comprehensive Delete Old Accounts product to make this kind of rigamarole quick and easy instead.
Is My Data Fully Deleted from Paytm after I Delete My Account?
Yes and No. When you delete your Paytm account, your personal login and bank information will be removed. However, due to India's Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA), financial apps are required to keep transaction records for up to 10 years. Under the rules of this act, your information will be kept secure - no passwords or bank numbers - and will never be sold or used commercially. However, Paytm is required by law to keep certain data for legally compliant government data requests regarding financially legitimate transactions.
