Use your username and password, Google, or Apple account to login. If you have multiple accounts, make sure you're logging into the right one before starting the deletion process.
To delete your WordPress account, you first need to delete any active sites from your My Sites panel.
As the explanation text notes, this will remove all your posts, pages and media — so make certain you've got the right site before moving on.
Convert any content you want to keep into a .zip file and then download it. Even if you have no plans for another WordPress site, your content is worth keeping since you won't get another chance to save it after this step.
Type in the site name exactly as it appears. Again, make sure this is the site you want to close before moving forward. You'll need to go through this deletion process for every active WordPress site attached to your account before it can be permanently deleted.
Closing your account not only removes all sites and their content — as opposed to individual site deletion, which removes the content but leaves your account still active.
In addition, you won't be able to open a new WordPress account using the attached email address for 30 days, and all other connected Automatic Services — including WooCommerce, Crowdsignal, IntenseDebate and Gravatar will be closed.
Make very sure this is the account you want to close before continuing.
