Special features when deleting a premium account
Differences when deleting a premium account
If you have a premium account with Web.de, there are some differences in the deletion process. Unlike a normal account, you cannot simply delete a premium account online.
This is because a premium account usually comes with a paid contract that must be cancelled before the account can be deleted.
Necessity of termination by mail for premium accounts
For Premium accounts it is necessary to send the cancellation by post. This means that you must write a formal letter of termination and send it to Web.de.
It is important that you make it clear in your termination letter that you wish to delete your account. After Web.de has received and processed your cancellation, you can delete your account as described above.
Please note that this process may take some time.
What happens after deleting your account?
Loss of all data and emails
After you delete your Web.de account, all your data is lost. This includes all emails you have sent or received and all entries in your address book.
It is important that you are aware of this consequence before deleting your account. If there is certain information you want to keep, make sure you back it up before deleting your account.
Waiting time for reuse of the user name
Another aspect you should be aware of is that once you delete your account, you will not be able to reuse your username for a certain period of time.
At Web.de, this waiting period is usually six months. This means that if you decide to create a new account, you will have to choose a different user name.
However, after the waiting period has expired, you can use your old user name again.
Summary of the most important points
In summary, deleting your Web.de account is a relatively simple process if you have a default account.
All you have to do is log in to Web.de, navigate to "Password/Account", select "Delete Account" and confirm the deletion process.
However, if you have a Premium account, you will need to take additional steps, including cancelling your contract by post.
Final thoughts and advice
Finally, it is important to stress that before deleting your account, you should ensure that you have backed up all important data as this will be lost when you delete the account.
In addition, you should bear in mind that you cannot reuse your username for a certain period of time. It is always advisable to consider these points before making a final decision.
