I create a lots of google ads account.

I follow this guide: https://support.google.com/google-ads/answer/2424604?co=ADWORDS.IsAWNCustomer%3Dfalse&hl=en

But it only tells you how to cancel google adwords ad accounts. So, these accounts still show on user profile account list.

I want to delete them, not just cancel them. How can I do this?

Once an individual adwords account is canceled, go to Tools & Settings > Setup > Account access and remove your own access to the account.

Google Ads Tools & Settings

This will remove the account from the list of accounts you have access to.

Note: You can't remove yourself if you're the only user managing the account. You'll have to add another email address to be an administrator, and then you'll be able to remove yourself from the account.

  • Note that you go into the cancelled account first before going to Tools & Settings etc

I have one more, create a new dummy ads account with new gmail id. Give all admin rights to that account. From there you can give rights to remove from the original account. Hope its working.

As of June 2022, if you want to remove a "draft" account, now there is a trash icon near the account name. You can easily delete the linked account and it won't be shown anymore.
