MyQ offers the undeniable convenience of controlling your garage door with a tap. 

But what if the ease of access starts to feel 

What if someone else has virtual control over your home entrance?

Don't let MyQ become a security concern! This guide empowers you to take back control.

What is myQ?

myQ is a technology ecosystem that allows you to see and control every access point in your home. See what is going on and open doors freely and safely. 

You can use the myQ app to check the status of your garage and entry doors, open and close them, or lock and unlock them from anywhere.

Why Is It Important to Delete Your myQ Account?

Deleting your myQ account may not be essential for everyone, but if you are not sure, consider the following factors:


MyQ allows remote access to your garage, which can pose a security risk. Deleting your account deletes your information and garage access credentials from their servers, lowering the risk of illegal access.


MyQ collects information about your garage door activities. Deleting the account removes your data from their system, allowing you greater control over your privacy.

No Longer Using MyQ

Deleting the account guarantees no remaining connections or stored data if you have sold your home, moved to a new system, or stopped using the MyQ application.

Reduce Online Activity

Even if you are not regularly using MyQ, deleting the account implies fewer online services storing your personal information. This may be a deciding factor for those concerned about online data collection.

Things to Keep in Mind Before Deleting Your Account from myQ

Before removing the myQ account, consider the following:

Remote Access

  • The MyQ app will not allow you to control your garage door remotely. 
  • This can be a significant concern if you are used to opening and closing the garage with your phone.

Smart Home Integrations

  • If MyQ is integrated with other smart home services (such as Amazon Key for package delivery), cancelling your MyQ account will disrupt those connections.

Disconnecting from myQ

  • Cancelling your account removes your garage door opener from MyQ. 
  • If you wish to use a different smart home system in the future, you'll need to reprogram your garage door opener according to the manufacturer's specifications.

Decreased Security Risk

  • MyQ provides online access to your garage, which can raise security concerns. 
  • Deleting your account removes your data and garage access credentials from their servers, reducing the risk of illegal access.

Improved Privacy

  • MyQ collects information about your garage door activity. 
  • Deleting the account removes your information from their system, allowing you greater control over your privacy.

Is myQ a Secure Platform?

Like most internet-connected products, MyQ has some cybersecurity risks. Hacking and data breaches are threats that could allow unauthorised garage door access or reveal personal information. 

Communication interception is achievable in very few instances. While MyQ uses encryption to limit these threats, you should be cautious about them, particularly if you wish to keep your MyQ account.
