Hello @442ad08032f14af4ab53d96df1cfef

If you want to deactivate your account you can follow our docs here

Deactivating an account stops billing and prohibits future resource creation. You can choose to reactivate the account in the future with the same account history, resource limits, and verification status.

When you deactivate an account, you have the option to permanently remove the account’s data from DigitalOcean, including email and billing information. Purging this data means you cannot reactivate the account in the future, so you would need to create and verify a new account to use DigitalOcean again.

Hi @442ad08032f14af4ab53d96df1cfef,

All you need to do is stop/destroy your product and you won’t be charged for anything anymore.

Basically, if you have a Droplet, all you need to do is stop it and then delete it.
