TeraBox is one of the lucrative cloud storage platforms available, offering 1TB of free storage without paying a penny. This translates into 300K photos, 2500 videos in good quality, and so on. It is available in 207 countries according to TeraBox and already has 10 million-plus downloads on Google Play Store alone.
The platform also offers premium services, where you pay for more storage and functionalities. However, what would you do if you decide to delete the TeraBox account for some reason? Is it even possible? If yes, how can you do it? If these are the questions that are popping up in your mind, here’s a guide on how you can delete the TeraBox account.
Things to Know Before Deleting TeraBox Account
Before you can proceed with deleting an account on TeraBox, there are a few things that you should keep in mind.
First up, you would no longer have a TeraBox account to access ever again. You can create a new account but cannot use the previous one.
Secondly, all the data stored on your TeraBox account will be wiped off. This includes everything from photos, videos, documents, games, and other files ever stored on your account. This means unless you take a backup of the files, you wouldn’t be able to retrieve those deleted files ever again.
If you have a subscription on TeraBox, you won’t be able to delete the account right away. You will have to unsubscribe first, thereby ditching all the premium features with effect immediately. Once you have unsubscribed, you can delete the account and uninstall the app if no longer required.
The last thing, if you are using the same TeraBox account on multiple devices, deleting the account on one device will mean all the devices will be forced to log out of the account. Although it is only logical, I did mention it for those who might not be aware of this information.
