4.  Click Yes on the popup window to proceed.



Deleting a project is irreversible. Once a project is deleted, the following will occur:

  • The project will be removed from the website listings and no one will be able to view it.
  • Messages and files will no longer be accessible.

  • The option to contact the hired freelancer will no longer be available.

  • The project will be removed from search engine results the next time is indexed.


If you wish to keep your conversations and files, you may upgrade the project to Private instead. You may also opt to cancel the project.
