GCash is a wonderful e-wallet program that has become an essential addition to many Filipinos’ everyday life. However, for a number of reasons some GCash users have indicated a wish to disable or erase their GCash accounts.
One reason you want your GCash account to be deleted is to have a new GCash account and to remove the old one. In the days when you needed to write specific keywords to sign up for GCash, some users (including your own) established GCash accounts that were forgotten subsequently. I’ve probably established 2 or 3 GCash accounts in this method (that was before GCash had a mobile app). Even though the old and forgotten GCash accounts are kept untouched, some may wish these old accounts gone for good.
Another reason to disable or cancel your GCash account is if you don’t use GCash anymore. Perhaps you favor a mobile wallet like PayMaya and wish to dip GCash. Through GCash is the most popular e-wallet in the Philippines, it’s far from flawless and it has several shortcomings that make it more feasible for its competitors such as PayMaya and Coins. ph.
To my knowledge, GCash does not suspend or remove accounts that remain dormant for some time. This is not like a bank, which charges a monthly maintenance fee and deletes your account if it was sleeping or inactive for a while. If you don’t like or no longer use GCash, you may just leave it as it is. You don’t really need to remove or disable your GCash account.
You may update your mobile number in GCash if you have a new mobile number or if you have misplaced your previous number. All you need to do is create a support request and say that you wish to change your cellphone number. To confirm your identification, you may need to supply more personal data. There is no option present in the mobile app to alter your GCash number.
