How do I delete my ActBlue Express account?

If you delete an ActBlue account, you will not be able to use the email associated with that account again to create a new account. Additionally, when you delete your ActBlue account, any active recurring contributions will also stop.

If you are sure you want to permanently delete your account, sign in to your ActBlue Express account and click on the Account menu in the navigation bar on the top of your screen. Choose “Settings” from the dropdown.

Scroll down to the bottom of the Settings page and you will see the option to delete your ActBlue account. 

Click the “Delete” button on the right side of your screen.

Clicking the “Delete” button will bring up a pop-up which will ask you to enter either your current password or a temporary code to verify your identity.

If you created your ActBlue account using a Gmail- or Gmail-affiliated email address and do not have an ActBlue password, you will only see the option to use a temporary code.

If you use a temporary code, ActBlue will send an email to the address listed in the pop-up.
