Logging Out via Email:
If you are unable to access the Boomplay app directly, you can also log out by sending an email request:
- Compose an e-mail: Open your e-mail client and compose a new e-mail addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org, Boomplay’s customer support email address.
- Request account logout: In the body of the e-mail, clearly state that you would like to log out of or deactivate your Boomplay account. Include your full name and e-mail address used for your Boomplay account registration.
- Send the e-mail: Once you have composed the e-mail, review it for accuracy and send it to [email protected].
- Wait for confirmation: The Boomplay support team will email you back confirming they have logged you out of your account across all devices. This may take 1-2 business days.
Emailing Boomplay support directly allows you to remotely log out even if you don’t have physical access to the device with the Boomplay app. Just be sure to include necessary account details in your email so support can verify your identity and process your logout request.
Here are some common questions about logging out of your Boomplay account:
1. Why should I log out of Boomplay?
Logging out of Boomplay protects your personal information and activity if you are using a shared or public device. It prevents others from accessing your account without your permission. Logging out also clears cached user data from the app for privacy.
2. What happens if I forget to log out of Boomplay?
If you leave Boomplay open on a public computer or a device you do not own, the next person who uses it may be able to access your account, see what you have been listening to or personal information, and use your paid subscription if you have Boomplay Premium.
Always log out to prevent misuse.
3. Will logging out delete my Boomplay account?
No, logging out does not delete or deactivate your account. It simply logs you out on that particular device and clears any cached user data. Your profile, followers, playlists, preferences etc. will remain intact for the next time you log in. The only way to delete a Boomplay account is to contact customer support.
4. If I reinstall the app, will I still be logged in?
Usually no, a fresh install of the Boomplay app will require you to log in again even if you were logged in previously. However, if you sync Boomplay to your Google or Facebook account, it may automatically log you in after reinstalling based on the linked credentials.
5. How do I log out if I don’t have the app?
If you no longer have the Boomplay app but want to log out from all devices, you can send an email request to [email protected] asking them to remotely log you out of all active sessions. Include your name and account email for verification.
