It’s safe to say that the process of signing up for an account is one of the easiest things to do unlike the deletion process, and so, if you are having a hard time trying to delete a Shazam account, then I am glad to announce to you that the solution you seek is here.
That being said, it’s important you take note of what happens when you delete your Shazam account.
What Happens When You Delete A Shazam Account?
Before you proceed to delete this account, it’s important that you note that once you delete your Shazam account:
1. All your personal data such as Shazam history, Email Id, Facebook ID (if logged in through Facebook), etc. will be deleted from their database.
Also, if you have previously shared anything with Shazam from your Facebook, it will be deleted as well.
2. It will take at least 30 days to process your deletion request, so expect that your account will be permanently deleted within 30 days.
3. It is a permanent action, and as such your Shazam account can’t be retrieved.
Having said that, if there is data you wouldn’t want to lose as a result of deleting this account, the ideal thing to do is to download them.
