How to delete my Origin account?

★★★ Newbie

I followed the steps leading me to this page:


Which just sits there saying:


"Thanks for Contacting EA!

Please wait while we connect you to an EA Game Advisor."


Could someone with access just DELETE MY ACCOUNT:




I'm presuming this is the user name, it's the name I used on the PS3? Is that how EA got my contact details? I have no idea .. but I can guarantee you that the screen I'm supposed to go through ISN'T LOADING. I only know I have this account because I got a 'password reset' e-mail .. so someone has hacked the account.


I suggest you delete it quickly.

Contact Customer Support 

They can be found here:

Choose a category, a game and a platform for the option so show up.

If live chat is gray, change your country to US and make sure you're on US Business hours. It might also gray because they're very busy. Try later.

See this post if you have trouble with the site:

Good Luck and Happy Simmin

Why would you want to delete it? If you're done with that Origin account (or Origin in general) just don't use it. That way if sometime down the road you change your mind you'll still have your account and all games associated with that account.
