I’ve destroyed my droplets and paid my bill. I need to close down the account and I can’t. Your link does not show me how to do this. Please advise

Great question! Once you’ve destroyed all of your Droplets, you can fully deactivate your account here:

If you choose to purge your data, you can’t re-open that specific account again, but can re-use the same email address. If you keep your data, you can always just open up your account again when you’re ready!
