Deleting an account is permanent. After you delete your Atlassian account, we’ll give you a 14-day grace period, during which you can cancel the deletion.

To delete an account:

  1. Log in to your Manage your account pages at

  2. From the Delete account tab, click the Delete account button.

  3. Before you delete the account, read what happens to the deleted account carefully. Refer to the details about account deletion above.

  4. Click Delete accountFrom the confirmation dialog that appears, confirm that you want to delete your account. If you get some warnings, you may need to take care of these issues before you can go back to deleting the account.

Once you confirm the deletion, we’ll log you out and you’ll land on a confirmation screen. Your account is now scheduled for deletion and deactivated.

When I go there, I can only see my user, not the three organizations I'm apparently a member of. I need to delete one of those. This one exactly:

What I see when I go to the URL you provided is this:

There's not even a Delete tab there.

The steps to this answer are incomplete.  That said use the link provided in the initial answer above and then in the left navigation select 'Account Preferences'. Here you will find the 'Delete your account' controls.

There is no delete account tab.  In my case, I will just dispute the payment on my credit card.

Companies should make it easy to remove an account.
