Managing your personal account
You can manage your personal account on GitHub.com. For example, you can manage multiple accounts, convert an account to an organization, or delete an account.
Managing multiple accounts
If you use one workstation to contribute to projects for more than one account on GitHub.com, you can modify your Git configuration to simplify the contribution process.
Merging multiple personal accounts
If you have separate accounts for work and personal use, you can merge the accounts.
Converting a user into an organization
You can convert your personal account into an organization. This allows more granular permissions for repositories that belong to the organization.
Best practices for leaving your company
If you use your account on GitHub for both personal and work purposes, there are a few things to keep in mind when you leave your company or organization.
Unlinking your email address from a locked account
You can remove the connection between your email address and a locked account. The email address is then available for you to link it to a new or existing account, maintaining your commit history.
Deleting your personal account
You can delete your personal account on GitHub.com at any time.
