Deleting team account and keeping personal files private

Deleting team account and keeping personal files private

New member | Level 2

Hello, I have a team account, I am not the admin.

I'm leaiving the team and I'd like to delete my account and make sure my personal files are not able to be accessed by the admin after I leave.

2 problems - 

1 - I can't seem to find the option for delteing my account.  Is it only Admin that can delete me?

2 - Is there a way to permanently delete my personal files?

 

Thank you

The team admin can either delete your account (in which case all data in your account is deleted as well) or they can choose to convert the account to an individual account so you retain access to it.

Thank you for the explanation.

Is there a way I can delte my own account though?

No, because it's no longer your account. When an account is merged into a Business team, the account now belongs to the business.
