How to Disable your Binance Account?

Instead of permanently deleting your account, you can temporarily disable your Binance account. If you change your mind, you can reactivate it after 2 hours. This could be the better option in the short term. If you want to commit to deleting your account later, you can follow the steps above.

How to disable Binance Account

When disabling your Binance account, you will be unable to do the following;

  • Trade within your account
  • Login – your account will be disabled
  • Use API keys – these will be deleted
  • Use any other device associated with your account – all devices will be deleted.
  • Have any open orders or pending withdrawals – these will be cancelled

If you change your mind and want to reactivate your account, this can be done, but you will have to wait for at least two hours before you can reactivate your account.

Why Can’t I Delete my Binance Account?

While creating this guide on how to delete a Binance account, I had some issues. I was unable to delete my Binance account permanently and was only given the option to disable it.

I’m not sure if this is down to using Binance UK, and it must stay open for regulations. However, when I contacted support via chat, they advised me that the option to delete Binance was no longer available.

As per our terms and conditions, we are not able to provide deletion of the account. You can disable it using the link provided below. The reason for this is for your and our safety. We had this solution in the past, but it looks like it is good for both parties to just disable the account. Once you disabled Binance, no one will be able to use your documents, email address, or phone number.

I don’t know the whole reasoning behind this, and hopefully, it will be addressed as they are receiving some pressure from the FCA. Although I like the Binance exchange and use it to buy crypto, I find this a little concerning. I believe customers have the right to delete and remove their personal information.

Should I Delete my Binance Account?

There have been some negative articles in the UK regarding banks such as Barclays and Santander banning deposits and withdrawals from Binance. This has scared a few of their customers, making them want to close their accounts altogether. It’s too early to say if this is the beginning of a trend, but regulation is coming, whether we like it or not, and they will be coming for the biggest exchanges. So, I will show you how to close or disable a Binance account.

Conclusion

Deleting and removing your Binance account is permanent and irreversible. As mentioned above, you can always disable your account instead of going through and deleting it. It’s down to the individual, and there are plenty of platforms looking for your business, but it’s always worth having a backup exchange.

I’m concerned that some users cannot delete their accounts and personal information. Hopefully, Binance will address this and provide customers with further information on why they have chosen to remove this feature.
