Deleting an Open edX account

Unfortunately at this point in time, there is no way on the front end to properly delete a user's account. The best way to have an account removed is to send an email to with the username and/or email address of the user(s) you would like to be removed from the system.

It's a quick change for us to make on our end, so it shouldn't be something you ever have to wait a long time for us to process. Appsembler will only honor account removal requests from known contacts at client organizations.

Please ensure that the account is unenrolled from any courses before they are deactivated in order to prevent the user from appearing on enrollment reports and Insights.
