OpenStreetMap (OSM) in short is an online application that allows its users to view the editable map of the world. The website provides an option to create or edit account information, search the location and view the customized map, edit the map and add the location point if you knew any to help other users, export the map you have created in OSM extension and leave your query, question or helpful topics on Users Diaries section. We have recently received some requests from online users that they would like to delete their account from the OpenStreetMap website. After receiving those requests we begin our research for the reasons for users to delete their account and came to the conclusion that some users have deleted their account because they were on the website to create a custom map for their upcoming project or for personal uses and some members deleted their account because they choose an alternative service to view the map.
In case if you are deleting your account just because of their newsletter or mail you can either mark the mail as spam by clicking on spam button given at top of your mail button or unsubscribe the mail by clicking unsubscribe link given at the bottom of the mail or contact customer service to do so.
