Most of us created our Gmail accounts when we were new to the web and we were just teenagers who were fascinated by the internet. Back then all we wanted was a unique and cool sounding email addresses that we could share with our friends. Thinking about all that might feel embarrassing, but this has happened with most us and there’s nothing embarrassing with this.

Little did we know how important our Gmail address would become some 10 -20 years later. This came as a realization when most of us had to submit our email address for official use, such as providing them to school authorities or applying for an job.

Definitely creating a new email address would have been your only option and so it was for me. Now for those who don’t want to use their old email addresses which you created in your 10th grade, here’s how you can delete your Gmail account permanently.
