How to Delete A Last.fm Account

Last.fm is a music service that allows you to import details about the music you listen to from a variety of sources, including iTunes, Spotify and Last.fm radio to create a central listening list of sorts. Based on the music you scrobble (a word created by Last.fm) concerts and other artists are recommended. The website is free to use, but some users complain they are unable to use all of the resource on the website easily so they delete their Last.fm accounts a short while after creating the account.

Deleting My Account: Step By Step

If Last.fm is not for you and you want to delete your Last.fm account, you need to log in and visit the Data tab at

http://www.last.fm/settings/account

. You will see a link to delete your account. You will be asked for your password once again to verify you wish to delete. That’s all there is to it.

There is very little information on deleting a Last.fm account so we have no idea if there is a waiting period before your account is actually removed from the company’s servers. If there is a way to restore the account, it is not revealed in the FAQs section.

If you choose to delete your Last.fm account, you may have to remove the Scrobbler software from your computer. Not all users choose to download Scrobbler.

Privacy Policy Fine Print

Last.fm appears to be one of those companies that write a friendly privacy policy so as to not confuse website users. According to this privacy policy (located at

http://www.last.fm/legal/privacy

), Last.fm does not require the user to enter personal information. If they choose to do so it is because they want to not because Last.fm is collecting such data. You can choose to share as much or as little personal information as you’d like on the forums and in your personal profile.

Last.fm will hold on to your email address for communication purposes, but your email will not be shared with others without prior consent. Links to outside websites are posted and cookies are used to store information about your account on your personal computer.

Is There A Cancellation Fee?

No, there is no fee to delete your Last.fm account. There doesn’t appear to be a paid Last.fm service.
