How to Deactivate an ooVoo Account

Updated July 20, 2017

OoVoo is a free voice over IP software that enables you to make free video calls from computer to computer. Even if one user does not have ooVoo, video chats can still be made from your Internet browser on the ooVoo website. If you decide that you no longer want to use your ooVoo account, you will not be able to permanently delete your account, but you can deactivate the account. The account will remain in the ooVoo system and can be reactivated later, but your account will not be listed in search records and you will not receive notifications.
