How to Delete a Pottermore Account
As of October 2019, Pottermore is no longer an active website. It now belongs to a larger company owned by Warner Brothers called Wizarding World.

Reasons You May Want to Delete Your Pottermore Account
There are many reasons you may want to delete your account. They may include:
- Receiving too much email - Sometimes when we sign up for services or newsletters, we don't realize the number of emails we may end up receiving.
- No longer interested - Like many of its users, you may have signed up for Pottermore when you were much younger and then forgotten about it. If you no longer wish to access Pottermore products, it's wise to delete your account rather than letting it go unused.
- Cutting out unused online accounts - Even if you have no specific reason for wanting to delete your account, you may prefer not to have multiple unused accounts online. If you no longer access this account, you can delete your private information to protect yourself against security threats or data being shared without your knowledge.
For whatever reason you wish to , doing so can be relatively time-consuming and out of the way, especially if you have yet to migrate your information to the new website. DoNotPay can delete your account for you and get your information removed from the Wizarding World website with very little work on your part.
How to Delete Your Pottermore Account on Your Own
If you wish to delete your Pottermore account on your own, the most common way to do so is as follows:
- Log into the new Wizarding World website
- Navigate to the Settings icon
- Scroll to the bottom of the page and select Delete My Account
- Enter your username and password to confirm account deletion
From there, your account should be deleted and your information removed. However, the Wizarding World Privacy page states that it retains some of your data, perhaps even after you have deleted your account. If you are a California resident, you can submit a data deletion request directly from the website. However, if you are not from California, you must send them an email to request to have your data deleted. You will be required to prove your identity with account information and possibly a photo ID. The process seems quite tedious and confusing, but you don't have to do it on your own. Fortunately, DoNotPay can help you delete your account and remove most of the private information Wizarding World has stored about you.
