If you decide you don’t want to shop on the Instacart platform, you can delete your account. Deleting your account removes you from the platform entirely.
Here are a few things you should know—
- We’ll process your deletion request within 30 days once you submit it.
- If you delete your account and want to shop for Instacart in the future, you can’t use the same email address. You MUST use a new one.
