If you want to reduce the amount of information about you in Launchpad, you can edit your personal details.

Deactivating your account

Step 1: Visit your Launchpad profile.

Step 2: Click Change details. If you wish to ensure that your name is not displayed on links to your account after deactivation, then edit your personal details here before continuing.

Step 3: Scroll to the bottom of the page and click Deactivate your account.

Step 4: Optionally enter a description of why you are deactivating your Launchpad account.

Step 5: If you are certain that you want to permanently delete your subscriptions and other information associated with your Launchpad account, click the Deactivate My Account button.

Launchpad will now deactivate your account.

Recovering your account

If you later decide that you want to start using Launchpad again, you can recover your account by logging into Launchpad again using the same email address. (If you also deleted your account on the login service after deactivating your Launchpad account, then you will need to create a new account using one of the email addresses from your deactivated account, at which point you will get an error ID due to the account conflict; send an email to explaining the situation and including the error ID, and we can restore your old account for you.)

{i} Note: Recovering an account will not restore any information that was deleted when you deactivated it.
