    Olá!

    I'd like to know how to say 'Delete account' (a website account) in Brazilian Portuguese, but I'm not sure which of these verbs works better in this case: deletar conta, apagar conta or excluir conta...

    Muito obrigado!

    "Deletar" is a English word which was "aportuguesada", as we say, that is, adopted by Portuguese speakers thanks to the Internet.
    "Excluir conta" is your best choice.

    1° The word "deletar" doesn't exist in portuguese, it's an assimilation with the word "delete" in English in which some Brazilians began to use it as a free vocabulary of its language.
    2° "apagar conta" is grammatically correct as well as "excluir conta", the both are two forms of saying the same meaning, feel free to choose anyone.

    I would prefer "Remover conta" also.
