How to Delete Origin Account?
Origin is a digital distribution system offered by Electronic Arts (EA) which allows users to buy games online for PC, mobile platforms, etc. EA says that “Origin is the gateway to your entire gaming universe”, that’s why most people who love gaming have one of these accounts.
In this page you will learn how to delete your Origin account permanently, if you are having problems closing or cancelling your account, or, if you simply don’t know how the whole process works, then simply follow the steps below and we’ll show you how it’s done.
Delete Origin Account – Step By Step Tutorial
As stated on EA’s official help forum users can’t delete or close an account by themselves, in order to get an account closed you will have to contact a Game Advisor.
1. Go to Origin’s (EA) contact page at https://help.ea.com/en/contact-us.
2. Click the blue button located on the top left side of page that says “Contact a Game Advisor”, or simply go to this page https://help.ea.com/en/contact-us/ask.
3. Enter the reason why you want to contact a game advisor in the field box located below where it says “what can we help you with?” and then hit enter.
4. Select your product.
5. Then select from the next drop down list “Account Management”, “General Technical Support” or any other option, it really doesn’t matter.
6. Select your platform, the options are: Sony Playstation 3, XBOX 360, Sony PSP, and Nintendo Wii.
7. Click “Find Solutions”.
8. Then click the blue button located at the bottom right corner of the page that says “I Still Need Help, Login To Contacts Us”.
9. Login to your account and then follow instructions to request the termination of your account.
If you want to close your account because you believe that it has been compromised/hacked, then read the following article: I think somebody has hacked my Origin Account. What can I do now?.
Since closing an Origin account isn’t that easy, I imagine that after deleting your account permanently you won’t be able to get it back, you will lose all your information and settings for good, so before moving on, make sure that you really want to go ahead with this and that you are also ready for it, that way you won’t regret it once it’s all gone!
