Hi Andjela L,

You do not delete your AdWords account as it will still be retrievable in the future but you can cancel the account which will stop all activity within 24 hours.

Find out how here:
https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/2424605?hl=en&rd=1

Before you do so though, is there a particular reason why you wish to do this? Is there no way anyone here could help you out?

Hi Andjela,

Clynton has you covered here, the steps are pretty clear on the help pages. But, just in case, I figured I'd share this video that one of our community managers posted.

https://www.en.adwords-community.com/t5/From-the-Community-Team/Video-How-to-cancel-your-AdWords-acc...

I will second the notion though, that folks here may be able to help you sort some things out.

Thank you very much!
Will I have to pay since I haven't used adwords at all? I received this note:

You will receive a final bill for your account within 60 days. This final bill will include charges for any clicks that occurred before your cancellation but which you have not been billed for.

I am afraid not, I activated it by mistake, I was just curious.
Sorry! If I understood well, there's no delete option, the account will be deactivated and I can activate it at any time?

That is correct
