Deleting a Bing Webmaster account is a relatively straightforward process. Below, I will guide you through the steps involved in deleting your Bing Webmaster account. Please note that the instructions provided are accurate as of my knowledge cutoff in September 2021, and there may have been some changes since then.
Access Bing Webmaster: To begin the process, visit the Bing Webmaster homepage (https://www.bing.com/webmasters) and log in using your Microsoft account credentials. Ensure that you are logged in with the account you want to delete.
Dashboard: Once logged in, you will be taken to the Bing Webmaster Dashboard, where you can manage your websites and associated settings.
Website Selection: From the Dashboard, locate and select the website you want to remove from your Bing Webmaster account. Click on the website’s tile or any relevant option that allows you to manage the website.
Settings: After selecting the website, you will be directed to the settings page specific to that website. Look for the “Configure My Site” section or a similar option where you can adjust various settings.
Site Ownership Verification: Before proceeding further, it is necessary to ensure that you are the verified owner of the website. This verification step ensures that only authorized users can manage the site. If you have not verified ownership, you will need to do so before deleting the account. If you have already verified ownership, you can skip this step.
Account & Users: In the website settings page, locate and click on the “Account & Users” tab. This section allows you to manage the users associated with your Bing Webmaster account.
User Management: Once you are in the “Account & Users” tab, you will see a list of users associated with your account. Find the user account that you want to delete and select the relevant option to manage that user.
User Deletion: In the user management section, you should find an option to delete the user account. Click on this option to initiate the user deletion process.
Confirmation: After selecting the user deletion option, Bing Webmaster will likely display a confirmation message or prompt to ensure that you genuinely want to delete the user account. Read the message carefully and confirm your decision to proceed.
Account Deletion: Once you have confirmed the deletion, the user account associated with your Bing Webmaster account will be permanently deleted. This action removes all permissions and access rights for that user.
Repeat if Necessary: If you have multiple user accounts associated with your Bing Webmaster account that you want to delete, you can repeat steps 7-10 for each user until all desired accounts have been removed.
Account Closure: After deleting the desired user accounts, you can choose to close your Bing Webmaster account entirely. This step is optional but may be relevant if you no longer intend to use Bing Webmaster or have finished managing your websites.
Contact Bing Webmaster Support: If you encounter any difficulties or have further questions regarding the deletion process, it is recommended to contact Bing Webmaster Support. They will be able to assist you and provide specific guidance tailored to your situation.
