Deleting your Xbox account is a pretty straightforward process. However, before you go ahead and do it, there are a couple of things you should keep in mind. First and foremost, deleting your account will also delete any associated Gamertags, so if you have more than one account, make sure you delete the right one. Secondly, if you have any outstanding subscriptions or credits, those will be lost as well. So if you’re sure you want to delete your account, here’s how to do it:
1. Log in to your Microsoft account online.
2. Click on the “Security & Privacy” tab.
3. Under the “Your information” section, click on the “Manage your sign-in info” option.
4. Scroll down to the “Delete your account” section and click on the “Delete Account” button.
5. Enter your password and click on the “Continue” button.
6. Finally, click on the “Delete Account” button again to confirm.
And that’s it! Your Xbox account will now be deleted.
