Are you concerned about your online presence and privacy? You probably have dozens of these online accounts
If you are concerned about your information getting leaked , you may wish to delete your fitbit account from the internet.
Also, you could be more busy now than you were weeks, months or even years ago and so, since you’re no longer as available online as you used to be, it makes sense to get your account deleted.
If this is the case with your Fitbit account, then, it is a rather unfortunate one for the company as they will be losing a viable customer to reasons beyond your control.
From another point of view, it could also be that your reason for seeking a delete is because you are no longer comfortable using your Fitbit account. Maybe it is technical issues; customer service poor response, issues pertaining to slow server to mention but a few.
It all makes sense if you choose to get your account deleted. But! Make sure you’re not Requesting a delete because of Email Spamming, (that’s if it one of the issues you’re having), because there’s a solution for that… All you’ve got to do is simple… just mark the email as spam or Unsubscribe from their newsletter by clicking the unsubscribe button at the bottom of the email. That’s easy right? I guess it is!
Now, without wasting further time, to the main point of this article…
How to Delete Your Fitbit Account easily
The deletion process differs depending on whether it’s yours. That is, one created when purchasing a Fitbit device or someone else’s account who recently died and whose account needs to be cleared off the online space. So stay with me…
Important: Inasmuch as deleting your Fitbit account is super easy, here is something to consider before attempting the process:
If you have a Fitbit coach account, deleting your Fitbit account will equal a loss of your coach account.
Have you been in a situation when you regretted an action in the past? Then, I’ll strongly advise, that if you’ve not thought about this decision you want to take now, that you make up your mind with the next seven days after requesting a delete.
Why? Within that time frame, you can still retrieve your revover your data. All you’ve got to do in that case is log into your account and choose to restore access to the data.
After this seven days, the account will be frozen implying that the action will no longer be reversible at that point.
Well, the actual deletion from the Fitbit community may take up to 90 days to completely delete your personal information from their backup systems.
Well, if you are simply looking forward to deleting your account and getting it closed for good, then, here’s how to get it done through the Fitbit app..

How to delete a deceased loved one or friends Fitbit account
There are actually no easy-to-click options to get your deceased loved ones fitbit account. If you have the login details, you can simply follow the instructions required to effect the delete via website or app.
However, if the contrary is the case, what I can do for you is show you contact options of customer service representatives that you can present your problem to.
Regardless of which option is easiest and better, you will need to have email address with which that loved one of yours created his or her Account with Fitbit. It’s compulsory, so you should have it handy.
These options are highlighted below
1. Online Chat: this implies that you will have to get contact to the customer service unit through your Fitbit account, your Facebook or Google accounts.
2. Twitter: this is quite similar to the first except that there is an address for you to send the request to. Here’s it – “@fitbitsupport” through Twitter.
3. Call the Customer service directly through this number : (877) 623 4997 . Anyway, getting a response from a Customer service representative is feasible between 4am to 9pm.
Take note: that your digital afterlife is something that should be of some importance to you.
The term “digital afterlife” is relatively new to some people and refers to a person’s social media accounts, cloud storage as well as any other online accounts that may be left behind at the demise of the person.
It’s not difficult to find out that there’s usually little you can do in a bid to recovering the accounts of a deceased person as companies want to protect their users privacies and accounts even beyond the grave. The bank is one of such institutions.
Think Carefully about what you’d like to happen to your Facebook account, iCloud files, Google drive data, Twitter and even your email accounts after you’re gone so that you can include your choices in your end-of-life plan.
One important thing I’ll advise as well, is that you keep the login details to your accounts especially the ones that are of great importance to you or your family.
Imagine, dying without telling any of your family members the pins to your bank accounts. To make matters worse, you didn’t have your details written handy anywhere close that someone can access. You know the implication of that kind of action right?
Your whole life savings may be as good as gone with very thin chances of recovery. So, plan for your old age and after life legacies from now. It will surely pay off.
