How To Delete Azure Account Subscription Permanently & Cancel Pay

Delete Azure Account Subscription

If you want to delete Azure Account Subscription completely, then this article is for you. For starters, there could be multiple reasons why you would want to do that. You might have created this subscription for learning purposes and do not wish to get charged once the trial is over. It could also be a company account with which you are no longer associated.

Whatever the reason might be, we will show you the way to delete it and stop any future billing. But before you were removing your Azure account, here are some key considerations:

  • As soon as you cancel your account, your billing stops and so does your Azure services (such as VMs, Databases, WebApps, etc.)
  • VMs would be immediately deallocated, and all associated resources such as IP addresses would be freed.
  • All your user data would be marked for deletion within the next 90 days.
  • All storage accounts would be marked as read-only
  • You can delete your credit card information from the “Account Center.”

Once you are ready and completely understand the implications, follow the steps below to complete the process.
