How do I delete my profile?
How do I make my profile private?
Academia.edu is an open platform for researchers to share their work. Since the open flow of information is central to our mission, we do not provide an option to make an account private.
How do I hide my profile from Google?
Unfortunately, we do not offer this option. If you would like your profile or your profile picture to no longer appear on Google, you will have to delete your profile picture or your profile entirely.
I've deleted my profile from Academia but it's still on Google!
Unfortunately, once your Academia profile has been deleted, we can't help you any more on our end. If you have just removed information from Academia.edu, it might take some time before Google crawls the page and removes that information from their search engine.
If you'd like, you can contact Google to request that they delete the information from their search rankings. To do so, click here. Once there, select *How to remove outdated content* and follow the instructions from there. Please be aware that any further assistance on this issue should be directed to Google.
