Singapore-based Garena Free Fire is a combat shooter game designed for low-end devices. The concept is similar to the PUBG game. Players land on a deserted island, compete for weapons and supplies and take down any survivors who stand in their way. To win the game, users need to survive until the end of the game.
But the list of open-world survival games is not just limited to these two games. Today many other games in the market follow the same gaming concept.
If you wish to switch to another battle royale game or are too busy to get time to play the game and finally ready to delete your Free Fire account, then we have got you covered.

Delete Free Fire account
In almost all online games, your account on the platform is governed by some Terms Of Services violating, which can render your account suspended, freeze or deleted permanently.
The same goes with Garena; any unethical use of the account or by order of any regulatory or governmental body or an order from a court of competent jurisdiction will prompt Garena to terminate your account along with forfeiting all virtual currency and items in the game.
Deleting your account with Garena Free Fire is not as straightforward as you might find with other games. And with time, it has also restricted the loopholes that many players have exploited to get the account deleted from the platform to either start a new journey in the game or play in a different region.
So, if you wish to get your account deleted from the platform the best course of action is to sign out of the in-game account and not log in again for more than 6 months. The In-activity in the account will allow Garena to delete your account for good. All you can do is unlink the account from a third-party platform.
How to unlink Free Fire account?
Before Initiating the gameplay, Free Fire demands the host to open an account by signing in through Facebook, Google, Twitter and VK account so that the progress or any in-game purchase can be saved and retrieved back in case the device is damaged.
You can find the guides to unlink the following three third-party accounts from Free Fire.
You can also play the game by opening a guest account, but any progress in such an account will automatically be deleted if you uninstall the game. Making a feasible choice for casual gamers who don’t wish to share their data with the Garena from other platforms.
It is a well-known fact that the games with which you link your social media account automatically get the consent to access and process your personal data saved in these social media accounts. And uninstalling or logging out from the game will still let Garena access your account for those in-active months.
So, it is highly recommended that the account you wish to remove from the game be unlinked from third-party platforms to prevent further sharing of any data.
