Removing Account

For security reasons, we cannot delete an account on behalf of the user. You must have access to the Crowdin account in order to delete it.

To delete your account, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Account Settings.
  2. Open the Profile tab.
  3. Scroll down and click Remove Account.

Once you remove your account, your projects and account settings are removed permanently and are not recoverable. The translations you made (comments, terms, and votes) stay as they were and appear as added by a Removed User.

Sudo Mode

Crowdin asks you to confirm your password before you can perform any of the sudo-protected actions that include creating/changing your password and email, connecting/disconnecting SSO, enabling/disabling two-factor authentication, creating personal access tokens, and deleting your account.

After you’ve confirmed your password, you’ll be able to perform the sudo-protected actions without additional re-authentication within the next five minutes.
