Indeed is an employment online platform. The platform searches the web for open job postings from job boards and company websites to post them in one, convenient location. The platform has transitioned to now allowing companies to directly post job openings on Indeed and for job seekers to directly apply to jobs through the platform.
To apply for jobs through the Indeed website, users have to create a profile. Your Indeed account allows you to track which jobs you have applied to, and mark if you have received an interview, got the job, or archive jobs you are no longer interested in. If you no longer wish to use your Indeed.com account, keep reading for instructions on how to delete the account.
Go to www.indeed.com
In the top right corner of the screen, select 'Sign In.'
You can sign in to your account with your email address and password. Alternatively, you can sign in to your Indeed.com account with a Google or Facebook account.
You have signed in, click your email address or name in the top right corner. From the drop-down menu, select 'Account.'
You will be redirected to a page with all of your account settings. At the bottom of the page, select 'Close My Account.'
You will be asked to select the reason you're leaving. Choose the option that most applies to you. The options are:
I recently found a job and/or I am no longer searching for a job
I don't want my resume to be posted publicly
I receive too many emails or job alerts
I have multiple accounts and want to consolidate them
I do not see value in having an account (e.g. not getting job offers, not hearing back about applications I've submitted, etc.)
Click on 'Close My Account.'
You will receive an email confirming the account has been closed. This action cannot be reversed so after you close your account you lose your application history.
Once you close your account, you will no longer receive marketing emails from Indeed. However, you will still receive communications from any employers you were previously in contact with.
If you use the same email to create a new account, your previous email settings will be applied automatically.
Indeed.com doesn't have a phone number that you can reach out to connect with a customer service representative. Instead, you can try reaching out to the Indeed.com Help Desk. It takes an average of 19 hours to receive a response.
After thousands of Indeed.com customers came to GetHuman in search of an answer to this problem (and many others), we decided it was time to publish instructions. So we put together How Do I Delete My Indeed.com Account? to try to help. It takes time to get through these steps according to other users, including time spent working through each step and contacting Indeed.com if necessary. Best of luck and please let us know if you successfully resolve your issue with guidance from this page.
GetHuman has been working for over 10 years on sourcing information about big organizations like Indeed.com in order to help customers resolve customer service issues faster. We started with contact information and fastest ways to reach a human at big companies. Particularly ones with slow or complicated IVR or phone menu systems. Or companies that have self-serve help forums instead of a customer service department. From there, we realized that consumers still needed more detailed help solving the most common problems, so we expanded to this set of guides, which grows every day. And if you spot any issues with our How Do I Delete My Indeed.com Account? guide, please let us know by sending us feedback. We want to be as helpful as possible. If you appreciated this guide, please share it with your favorite people. Our free information and tools is powered by you, the customer. The more people that use it, the better it gets.
