How to cancel your AdSense account

To cancel your AdSense account permanently, 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. Note that Google will not make payments for any earned balance that does not reach this threshold.

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

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

To cancel your account permanently:

  1. Sign in to your AdSense account.
  2. Click the gear icon and select Settings.
  3. In the "Account information" section, 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 that we’ve provided, including the AdSense Terms and Conditions.
    3. Click Continue. We'll send a cancellation email to your contact email address.
    If your account does not meet all of the requirements to receive a final payment...
  5. When you receive your 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 cancelled successfully. Any remaining account Administrators will then be notified that the AdSense account associated with their Google Account has been cancelled.
If you'd like to participate in AdSense again in the future, you'll need to submit a new application using an email address that's not associated with any previous AdSense account.
