Once confirmed, all data associated with your account will be permanently deleted from our system – including all designs, files and resources saved within it.

What Happens When You Delete Your Canva Account?
If you are considering deleting your Canva account, it is important to consider the consequences. Deleting your Canva account can have a few different impacts on your work, depending on the type of account you have and what you have saved on it. This article will discuss some of the key questions that you should consider when deciding whether or not to delete your Canva account.
Your account will be permanently deleted
When you delete your Canva account, all of the content you have created or uploaded (including designs, videos, photos and other media) will be permanently deleted from our servers. Once we receive your deletion request, we’ll begin the process of permanently removing all data associated with your account from our systems. All versions of the designs will also be deleted, including any public versions of designs that were shared on social media or saved in streams.
It’s important to note that certain information associated with your account may remain within our system for up to 90 days in order to comply with applicable laws and internal control procedures before it is completely purged from our systems. Furthermore, if you’ve connected Facebook to Canva, then some info from your Facebook profile may remain visible on posts that contain a design you made while connected to Canva and posted using the share feature even after deleting your account. Please review Facebook’s data policy for more information about how they use that data.
It’s also important to note that when accounts are deleted they will no longer have access to their Canva Pro subscription or any other premium features they amay have had unlocked while using Canva. Deleting an account is permanent and cannot be undone — so please make sure this is something you’d like to do before initiating deletion. If you’re considering deleting your account because of an issue with a feature or service within Canva please reach out directly via our support channels here — as many issues can be easily resolved without having to delete and recreate an entire account!
Your content will be permanently deleted
When you delete your Canva account, all of the content you have created in Canva will be permanently deleted from our system. This includes designs, documents, images and any other content that has been uploaded to your Canva account.
All content saved for purchase in your shopping cart will also be permanently deleted when you delete your account. In addition, any subscriptions or payments made with a credit card or Paypal will be refunded to the original card/Paypal account used at the time of purchase. If a valid payment method is not available on file or if no refunds can be processed due to a cancelled subscription status then Canva will not process a refund.
It is important to understand that deleting an account on Canva is permanent and no information (including previous designs and history) can ever be recovered again once the deletion process is completed.
Your account will not be recoverable
Deleting your Canva account means that all of your documents, designs, information, saved content (such as photos and fonts), and membership benefits will be permanently removed. Once you delete your account, you will no longer be able to access any of the content associated with it or make changes to them.
Your username and email address used when signing up for Canva are now associated with a deleted account so they can not be reused. You will be required to choose a new address if you decide to sign up another account in the future. Additionally, any documents or designs created with the deleted username will no longer appear in searches for people who follow you or other public views such as search engine results.
We also recommend deleting any traces from third-party sites where you’ve shared files linked from Canva (example: social media accounts). This is to prevent people from continuing to view links to your Canva content after it has been removed from the site. To do so, simply delete shared posts which contain the link.
What Are the Alternatives to Deleting Your Canva Account?
Are you considering deleting your Canva account, but not sure if it’s the right move? You should know that deleting your Canva account is a permanent action that cannot be reversed. Before taking this drastic step, you should consider some alternatives. This section will provide you with some alternative solutions to deleting your Canva account.

-You won’t receive notifications about activities on Canva or for upgrades unless at some point afterward you choose to reactivate your account.
