While most people use the service for safe and discreet internet browsing, there is now the option for everyone to cancel their account at any time. If you’re thinking about terminating your Hidemyass account, here’s what you’ll need to do.
Cancel Email Alerts
You can easily opt-out of receiving email notifications whenever there’s a new episode of a show you’re interested in or whenever there’s an important update regarding your account. To do this, simply visit the Settings page within the app and click on the blue Email icon in the upper right corner of the screen. From there, you can unsubscribe from any email alerts.
It’s worth noting that, even after you unsubscribe, you’ll still receive occasional emails from Hidemyass – for example, when there’s a new season of a favorite TV series or a big sale on a show you watch. But you can safely ignore these messages as you would any other spam. If you keep getting spammed, you can also report the email to Hidemyass using the “Contact Us” button at the bottom of every email message.
Secure Your Account
Even if you decide to keep your Hidemyass account, you should still take steps to make sure that your personal information remains secure. To do this, sign up for a free Gmail account and use its two-factor authentication system to secure your existing account. If you decide that two-factor authentication is too much security, you can always use the enhanced security option and require a six-digit password to sign in – just make sure to keep your Gmail account’s security questions accurate as you may need to provide them when asked.
How to Terminate Your Hidemyass Account
Once you’ve registered for a Gmail account and used its two-factor authentication to secure your Hidemyass account, you’ll need to visit https://accounts.hidemyass.com to access your account’s settings. From there, you can simply log out and cancel your account. You won’t be able to access your account from this page if you’ve previously used two-factor authentication, but you can easily get back to it by signing in with your Gmail account’s name and password.
If you ever decide to use the service again, you’ll need to create a new account and then link your old one with your new one (this is called “de-duplication”). Just be sure to never share your password with anyone and change it regularly – if you forget your password, you can always ask the support team at https://accounts.hidemyass.com to reset it for you. When setting up your new account, ensure that you use a secure password (at least eight characters long with at least one uppercase letter, a lowercase letter, and a number) and then two-factor authentication.
For more information about how to secure your account, be sure to check out Google’s website – they’ve got you covered with detailed information about how to properly set up your account and use two-factor authentication.
Why Should You Terminate Your Hidemyass Account?
If you decide that you no longer want to use the service, you have two options. The first is to simply log out of your account and delete it. The second is to transition your account to a different service (e.g., a Google-owned service like Gmail). In either case, you’ll need to contact the support team at https://accounts.hidemyass.com to get access to your account information so that you can delete it or transition it. Just be sure to take your time doing this – it’s not a task that you should rush.
If you decide to delete your account, you’ll need to remember to remove all traces of it from your phone (e.g., remove any apps that you may have installed relating to the service) before you wipe it clean. The same goes for transitioning your account to a different service – remove all apps that may be associated with the service before you log in with your new account’s credentials.
