How to Delete a 4Shared Account
4Shared is an online file storage and file sharing system. When you create an account, a virtual drive on their high speed servers is created for you to store your files. You have the option to leave the account private, meaning only you can see and access the files on the drive, or share the whole drive, or share individual files and folders with others. There is no clear cut way to delete the account, but this guide will help you remove the information from the account, so you can wait for it to automatically delete without worry.
Deleting My Account: Step by Step
There is no way to actually delete your 4Shared account. According to the terms of service, any free account that is not logged into for 180 days will automatically be deleted from the servers. To handle this, we suggest you login into the account a final time to remove any files you do not want on the drive, and remove any sharing abilities you may have set up. Then, log out and leave the account alone for six months. If you have any questions or concerns, you can contact 4Shared via email using this address: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have a premium account, you should have the option to downgrade it from the account dashboard. Do this first, so your account goes back to free status, then remove your files and leave the account inactive.
Is there a cancellation fee?
4Shared does offer premium accounts. If you cancel a premium account, you will not be charged again, but you will not receive a refund for any fees paid to cover the month in which you cancelled. If you have difficulties downgrading your account to a free one, contact support.
