This page describes when and how you can delete your Overleaf account.

If you are using a managed Overleaf account, only your account administrator can delete your Overleaf account. If you are not sure if your Overleaf account is managed or want to learn more about managed accounts, see our information for managed users.

Overleaf accounts that are not managed by someone else can be deleted at any time. If you no longer wish to use your Overleaf account and would like to remove all data associated with your account, please follow the instructions below.
