Delete user

Perform a DELETE request to the Authentication endpoint to delete the user record.

Only the owner of the data can delete it. This mechanism was implemented to prevent other authenticated users from updating other users data.

Note that Authentication endpoints are secured by default, so you have to include the Access token in the request. See below Request Cookies or Request headers.

HeaderDescriptionRequired
__Secure-yawe-access-token

The Access token is required for secure endpoints.

It is obtained when doing a login and it is stored in an httpOnly cookie. To automatically include it in the request you need to set the following property:

// using fetch { credentials: 'include' } // using axios { withCredentials: true }

Alternatively you can also use the Authorization header.

For more information please refer to  the login documentation and Secure Endpoints documentation.
Yes - if endpoint is secure and Authorization header is not used

You should use this header if you are not using the httpOnly cookie to access a Secure endpoint.

For more information please refer to  the login documentation and Secure Endpoints documentation.
