Cancel my account

To permanently cancel your AdSense account, you must be an account Administrator. Upon cancellation, you'll receive your final payment within approximately 90 days of the end of the month, provided that your account balance is greater than the cancellation threshold; Google will not make payments for any earned balance that does not reach this threshold.

If you’d just like to temporarily suspend your participation in the AdSense program, you can do so at any time by simply removing the AdSense code from your pages. Your account will remain accessible should you decide to use AdSense again in the future.

Before you permanently cancel your account, please be aware of the following:

To permanently cancel your account:

  1. Sign in to your AdSense account.
  2. Click the gear icon and select Settings.Click the gear icon and select Payments.
  3. In the “Account information” section, click cancel account. Click Payment settings in the left sidebar menu, then, next to "Account status", click cancel account.
  4. Review the information on the “Cancel account” page: If your account meets all of the requirements to receive a final payment.
    1. Select your reason for cancelling from the drop-down list.
    2. Select the checkbox to confirm that you have understood the information we’ve provided, including the AdSense Terms and Conditions.
    3. Click Continue. A cancellation request email with a link is sent to your contact email.
    If your account does not meet all of the requirements to receive a final payment...
  5. When you receive the cancellation email, click on the link to complete the cancellation process.
    On the “Account cancellation” page, a message is displayed telling you that your account has been successfully cancelled. Any remaining account Administrators will then be notified that the AdSense account associated with their Google Account has been cancelled.

If you want to participate in AdSense again in the future, you'll need to submit a new application using an email address not associated with any previous AdSense account.
