How to delete your Ecademy account

I feel like I’ve just been cured of cancer after deleting my Ecademy account. I thought I’d just leave it in the graveyard but people were being constantly spammed by invitations from my account. I can assure you that I would never recommend, let alone invite anyone to join Ecademy.

Their support email form has 4 options under the query section, of which, one of them is ‘account deletion’ – surely if it’s one of the most widely asked question they should make it easier? Anyway, I received an automated email response, which also had a link to where I could delete my account. However, the URL led to a page which doesn’t exist. It didn’t take me long to figure out that by deleting the extra characters they probably inserted on purpose, I could finally rid myself of their vile spam machine.

To delete your Ecademy account click on the following link.

Here’s the link they provided http://www.ecademycom/account.php?op=deleteme

Please pass this onto other poor souls looking to delete their account – in fact, why not post it on the Ecademy forum on my behalf? šŸ™‚

    Thanks for this Paul. I know it’s an old thread but I was getting increasingly fed up with the amount of spam from ecademy despite having disabled every communication option in my account.

    If they continue to spam me then I’ll use the ultimate technique and report them to their server co. Did this a while back with a site that is hosted with Rackspace & they (Rackspace) soon put a stop to it. I can recommend this course of action to anyone suffering from unwanted emails.

    Thanks for this post, Paul. I had done a Google search which brought up the page ecademy wanted me to see in order to delete my account. It was a help form, and after I submitted the Account Closure request, it was automatically a closed issue…which meant nothing had happened. Your post was direct and extremely helpful!

    Thanks again!

    I’ve done it.
    Almost evangelical experience. Had been trying to delete this account for ages with no luck. Over the years i have been bombarded with rubbish from all over the world, mainly people offering me bogus amounts of money in alleged foreign bank accounts.
    Thanks paul,

    Hi Paul,

    Thanks, you cured my cancer, I meant it.

    While many many online services allow a user to unsubscribe from their message notification system by simply clicking on a ‘Unbscribe’ link included in each email they sent, ecademy makes it very difficulttttt to unsubscribe, you your post saved me a lot of time finding this ‘delete my account’ link!
