How do I delete my profile?

At this time, there is not an option to delete your account completely.

However, your free TypePad account can be used to comment on TypePad and other blogs which require authentication and support OpenID.

You can find information on editing your free TypePad Profile page here: 

If you would still like to remove your account, please let us know, and we can take your profile offline.

How do I cancel a paid account?

We're so sorry that you're thinking of leaving us. Each of our bloggers is an important part of the TypePad community, so we'd love to have the opportunity to make this a better experience for you. If we can help with this in any way (some one on one help, a walkthrough, some service time on us), we'd love chance to communicate with you before you cancel!

If you must cancel, you may do so by going to Account > Billing Info > Cancel account, and following all of the steps there. We are not able to cancel for you, as you MUST agree to the Terms of Cancellation.

More information on cancellation is available at:

Can I transfer ownership of my account to someone else?

Currently, we do not have a way to transfer account ownership to someone. The best way to handle this is to allow the new owner access to your account so that they can update the billing information or you can update it yourself with their information. To change the Account information simply click to the Account link and update the fields - including the email address, and Save Changes. To update the billing information, go to Account > Billing Info > Payment Method (Update)

How can I change my email address?

To change your e-mail address you need to go to Account link.  Once there simply type your new e-mail address in the Email Address textbox. You'll then receive an e-mail to the new address asking you to verify the change. Once you've verified the e-mail, your account's e-mail address will update.
