Common Questions #

Can I delete my account? #

We aren't able to delete people's accounts at the moment, but an effective equivalent is to change all identifying information like your email, invoice address, and password, as well as remove any ssh keys, reset API keys, and remove your credit card.

Is there a spend rate limit on my account? #

There is a spend rate limit for new users. Make sure you have verified your email, otherwise your limit is near zero. Once you have verified your email, your spend rate limit increases automatically over time. If you are an enterprise user email us at to request a larger rate limit increase. Users paying with crypto are also eligible for rate increases.
