How to delete your Descript account

Deleting your account is permanent

Deleting your account is non-reversible. Once this action is complete, your personal data and email address will no longer exist in Descript, and the account is not recoverable. You will need to sign-up as a new user if you wish to continue using Descript after deleting your account.

Before you delete your account

All of the following data will be permanently removed from our systems including, but not limited to:

  • Projects, compositions and all associated media (including other drive members' projects) – make sure to:
  • Every drive owned by your account’s email address.
  • Transcriptions (including automatic and imported) – please be sure to export any transcriptions that you wish to keep.
  • Invoices and receipts – download your receipts for your records.
  • Your email address from our marketing emails.
  • Any active subscriptions – these will immediately be canceled, and any unused time will be forfeited.

Alternatives to deleting your account

  • If you are only trying to cancel or downgrade your Descript subscription to Creator or Free, please see our article on canceling or downgrading your Descript subscription.
  • If you are trying to remove one of your drives from your account, but still want to remain a Descript customer, please reach out to Descript Support for assistance.
