Troubleshooting and FAQ

Why can't I close my account?

Expensify doesn't allow you to close your account if you retain any individual responsibility for a Policy within Expensify. Outlined below are reasons for this:

  • Your account being under Domain Control - Your account must be deleted by a Domain Admin from their Domain Control > [Domain Name] > Domain Members page. (If you retain a secondary personal login, you can delete this afterwards by following the instructions above).
  • You are the only remaining Domain Admin for your company domain - You must appoint another Domain Admin from the Settings > Domain Control > [Domain Name] > Domain Admins page or delete the domain completely before you can delete your account.
  • Being the "Preferred Exporter" for your Policy Integration - You must update the Preferred Exporter for your Policy before deleting your account. Follow Settings > Policies >  Group > [Policy Name] > Connections > Configure and select any Policy Admin in the dropdown for Preferred Exporter.

If you're still running into problems with closing your account and the issue appears to be none of the above, don't hesitate to Contact Us and we'll do our best to put it right!
