This thread sure has lived a long time with lots of outdated information in it!

RE: Deleting your own account - Today, you can delete your own account by going to If you're not a church employee, you'll see "Delete Account" at the bottom of the Personal Information page. When your account is deleted, you will lose access to some church tools and information, such as your unique annotations in Gospel Library and your contributions to the FamilySearch Tree.

RE: App security - Since the Church moved to a Cloud Identity Provider, more and more applications are requiring Two-Step Verification if you've set it up on your account. As time goes on, I'm sure this will continue to increase!

RE: Third-Party FamilySearch apps harvesting names - You actually no longer need these apps. Family Search has this built-in. If you're running to the Temple to do an Ordinance, you just sign in to Family Search and click on "Temple" then "Ordinances Ready". You then select the Ordinance you would like to find names for. It will search your tree for you for names that are ready and need the work done - Super fast and easy!

Thank you for the information — good stuff.

Regarding the “third-party apps harvesting names”: regardless of whether or not “I” wanted or needed the app (I didn’t, but those who wanted the Teflon church experience of going to the temples with a name would), their existence seemed to be a security threat to FamilySearch and the church’s member and leader log-ins at the church itself. And they facilitated that Teflon manner of being dissociated from the person whose name is being used.
