2nd account also got a cheap job from a dude in China within a day or two of getting Auto Accepted.

 

I really wish Upwork would stop reverifying random people who were just verified a week ago and start actually tackling the real problems.

Plus my country was set by default to US, but I suddenly realized I live on a totally different continent.

I would like to delete my account. I don't have a profile set up yet and don't wish to do so. If I could get some help, that would be great. Thanks!

I was in the process of creating a freelancer account in the UK. I have uploaded my photo. I had to stop the process as I moved abroad. I am not interested in having an account in Upwork anymore. But I am not able to delete my already saved data. Since my account is not created yet, I am not able to delete it. However, it still shows my name and photo in public search (e.g. Google). I don't want my personal data to be public and I believe Upwork has a responsibility under GDPR to allow me to erase my details. Is there any way to delete my name and photo before account creation?
