Deleting your Notion account couldn’t be easier. The entire process takes around a minute, from start to finish. Just remember to export the contents of your Workspace(s) before proceeding. While Notion retains your data for around a month, it’s wise to depart with all your data in tow. You never know when you may need something again in the future or whether you’ll want to return to Notion.
Here’s something you may not know, though: You don’t need to delete your Notion account to delete a Notion Workspace. If someone else created the Workspace, you can leave it and create your very own one, or you can delete your existing one and create a new one if you want to start over. But if you’re intent on leaving, consider perusing this list of Notion alternatives for some other tools to take for a spin.

Help! I Accidentally Deleted My Notion Account
Notion waits around a month – 30 days, to be specific – before purging user files after an account has been deactivated. This means you have plenty of time to restore your Notion account so you can retrieve a file you left behind should you have deleted it without making a copy. Just shoot an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your request from the email linked to your account and they’ll take care of the rest.
