How To Delete Grubhub Accounts Easily [Step-By-Step]

Frustrated about an inability to delete Grubhub accounts? We’ll show you the three easy methods you can use to close down your Grubhub account.

Key Takeaways

  • It is possible to delete a Grubhub account. Doing so will deleteall personal information from the system.
  • Users can delete an account one of two ways: by using the app or contacting customer service.
  • As an alternative, you can pause the account instead of deleting it entirely.

Can You Delete Your Grubhub Account?

Yes, you can delete your Grubhub account, but the process is not as straightforward as on some other platforms.

Deleting your account results in the permanent removal of all personal information from Grubhub’s system, including your name, address, phone number, email address, and payment information.

This means you lose access to your profile information, order history, earnings (for drivers), rewards, and any Grubhub credits.

Once deleted, you cannot recover any information and would need to start from scratch if you decide to use Grubhub again.

Reasons to consider deleting your Grubhub account include:

  1. Removed from App: If you’re removed from Grubhub for policy violations, consider deleting your account.
  2. Switched Services: If you’ve moved to another delivery service and no longer use Grubhub, deleting your account makes sense.
  3. Stopped Driving: No longer driving for Grubhub? Deleting your unused driver account could be the next step.
