As you can see, it is very delicate and should be protected with the topmost security measures.
However this has not been the case, as there has been reports of account breaching and leaking out of delicate information on accounts of users.
In 2018, there was a report of a malevolent activity of presumed hackers that caused a disturbance, affecting a lot of customers (Reports say over six million. That’s a whole lot, right?).

Emailing is one of the fastest method of sending information, not minding the distance whether short or long.
You can email the Shein company to delete your account for you. Yeah, it’s not as easy as it appears to be.
Not going to be like “Hey, I want to delete my account. Do it now” and next thing, it’s deleted.
Funny right? Anyway, all you have to do is send the email from your own email address (I mean the same email address you uploaded during your first registration).
The recipient email address is [email protected] and you should fill the subject as “Delete my Account” or “ Delete my Shein account”.
After this, you’ll get a email reply as soon as possible from Shein asking for verification and once you have finally verified your decision, the account with its contents will be deleted.
To email Shein for your request, make your the sender’s (which is you) address is the correct email you registered your account with.
Emailing from a different address will not give you the desired result you want. If you have forgotten the email you registered, you can get a new email and update your account with it.
To change your email address from old one to the new one, you will go to the My Account Area and tap Update Email. That way, it will be easy for you to get the verification message.
