Article Summary

You can delete the account only if it you are a trial user or the root user of a paid subscription.

Delete an account with caution because deleting an account affects you and any sub-users under your root account. This action permanently deletes your account, any sub-users associated with your root account, and all of your objects and buckets.
If you are a Wasabi partner and you want to delete a Control Account, you must first delete all Sub-Accounts (active or suspended) associated with the Control Account.
If you are a paid subscriber and you delete your account, the final charge for your Wasabi service usage will be applied within 24 hours. For example, if you delete your account one (1) day into a 30-day Wasabi billing cycle, you will be charged only for one day of usage. If the amount of Wasabi usage is less than $.50, no charge will be applied.
When you delete your account, Wasabi will not charge you for any future charges, such as the charges associated with our 90-day minimum storage policy. If you are a paid subscriber and you delete your account, you will be charged a pro-rated portion of the 1 TB monthly minimum. For example, if you delete 15 days into the billing cycle, you will be charged for 50% of the usage for that month.
