Deleting Chrome Web Store developer accounts

Published on

This page describes how to delete a CWS account — either a developer or group publisher account.

About account deletion #

Items in the Chrome Web Store are associated with developer and publisher accounts. There are a few things you need to understand before you delete an account:

  • Account deletion is permanent. There is no "undo" for this action.
  • You can't delete an account that still has published items. If you have published items, make sure to unpublish them before you try and delete the account.
  • Group publisher accounts can only be deleted by the owner or manager of the associated Google Group.

How to delete a developer account #

To delete a developer account, first make sure you've unpublished any published items. Then, go to your account page on the Chrome Web Store Developer Dashboard. Scroll down to the Developer Account section:
