Next Steps for Thunderbird Delete Account If You Can't Do It Yourself
If you're having problems removing your old Thunderbird email account, you can still take some measures to ensure that your private information remains bulletproof. After successfully signing in to your account, follow the following tips:
- Delete any financial or payment information, such as credit card numbers, that can help any data phisher or other parties with access to make payments or purchases using your account. That is especially critical when you've linked your Thunderbird or Yahoo email account to payment apps like Paypal.
- Remove any private information you have stored in Thunderbird. It might be old notes, messages, or saved drafts on Gmail. Again, you need to export and download the data on a Local Folder before deletion.
- You'll also need to clear any personal details, such as name, phone number, date of birth, and other details in your personal settings. By doing so, you leave little information that might not be useful to hackers.
This process isn't always easy for a first-timer. It can be pretty frustrating, but there's an alternative solution: DoNotPay.
