How To Delete Your Account In Canva

Do you have no use for your Canva account anymore? Do you want to erase your templates, media, and other content within your account permanently? If that’s the case, you can delete your account on the app. In our step-by-step guide, we’ll cover all the steps about deleting your Canva account.


Canva is one of the best graphic design tools that people can use to create posters, presentations, videos, and other content. Once you create an account, you get access to numerous templates that you can use to create projects and designs for personal or business use.

However, we understand that Canva is not for everyone. While some people find their features lacking, others favor other design and editing tools.

Whichever the case, you can leave the app permanently once you delete your account.

Here’s our guide about deleting an account on Canva.

How to delete your Canva account

If you don’t use Canva anymore, you can delete your account from your Account Settings page. When you delete your account, the app will erase all the folders, designs, teams, and other information you have on your account.

You can delete your Canva account from your phone or computer. Check our tutorials below, and we’ll cover the steps for both devices.

On your computer:

  1. Visit Canva on your favorite web browser and sign in to your account.
  2. Click the gear icon on the top right.

  3. Head to the “Login & security” tab.

  4. Scroll down and select the “Delete account” button.

  5. Type “DELETE” on the empty field and click the red “Delete account” button to confirm your decision.

When you delete your account, you’ll lose all the designs, folders, templates, and media you have on your account. You’ll erase all the teams you created with other people as well.

On your phone:

  1. Open Canva on your phone and sign in to your account.
  2. Tap the hamburger icon on the top left.

  3. Select “Settings” from the menu.

  4. Head to your “Login & security” page.

  5. Tap the “Delete account” button.

  6. Type “DELETE” on the empty field and tap the red “Delete account” option to confirm your decision.

If you ever change your mind, you have two weeks to login back into your account to cancel your deletion request. Once that period passes, you won’t be able to use your account or restore it in the future.

Before deleting your account, make sure to cancel your subscription (if you have any) to avoid charges.

To wrap things up

Although Canva is a great tool for designing and creating projects, we know that it’s not for everyone. Thankfully, you can easily delete your account on the app to erase the data and media files you uploaded to the app.
