The process of freeing up memory in the cloud
We will go to the analysis of this issue from the very beginning, and therefore we will mention that in order to get a place in the Mi Cloud, you must have a Xiaomi account, and each of you must already own such an account. So go into it, after which you will see an infogram about what the cloud memory is spent on. Basically the place is occupied by:
- multimedia files, that is, photos and videos;
- backup of applications available on the device (you can disable it);
- voice recorder recording.
It is definitely worth noting that, in addition to these points, this includes phone book entries, notes, but since their share in the entire cloud is insignificant, you can skip these and similar points.
If you went to Mi Cloud, then select all other items through the cloud interface, and this is elementary. If you want to carry out the appropriate manipulations through the phone, then first we study the state of the cloud along the path: “Settings. Mi Cloud. Memory”. Then we proceed as follows:
- go to the “Gallery” tab, where we immediately jump to the “Cloudy” sub-tab, and then delete all unnecessary wallpapers, screenshots, videos, and so on;
- after clearing the most voluminous category, it remains to launch the “Dictaphone” application, and then select the menu item “Records”, then “Cloudy” and delete them;
- the backup of applications is deleted through the Mi Cloud menu, from which we started, and by going to the “Backup applications” tab, we will see the entire list of programs. By clicking on any of them, at the bottom of the window that opens, click on the “Delete backup” button.
Thus, you will be able to quickly and easily clean up space in the cloud, in order to soon fill it with new files. But what if you don’t have enough space anyway??

Deleting my account
This option is undesirable if you only need to untie your device. The fact is that even after deleting the account, it takes some time (up to several days) for the device to untie itself from it. There were times when a failure occurred and the account was deleted, but the device still constantly required a password. To completely delete my account itself, we need to follow the link https://account.Xiaomi.com/pass/del. You will be asked to enter your username and password if you have never logged into your account through a browser. Then you will be asked if you are sure that you want to delete your account and all its data.
To confirm, you need to check the box next to the inscription “Yes, I want to permanently delete my Mi Account” and press the orange button “Delete account”. Removal completed.
If you can’t untie
If these methods did not help you or did not suit you, then the only option is to contact Xiaomi technical support with the question of how to delete my account from the phone. This option is not quick, it takes from two days to several weeks, as support will ask you for various proofs of the purchase of this phone. You can write to the following addresses: [email protected], [email protected] and [email protected]

Option 3. Registration through the application
If for some reason you are unable to use the browser for registration, you can register in the same way through the application, initially installing it on your smartphone. The disadvantage of this method is that to complete the registration, your phone will send an SMS abroad (roaming), which will cost you more than a regular SMS.
We enter your phone number, after that you will be asked to send an SMS to roaming to complete registration, if you are ready to pay for this SMS, then click “ok”.
Update. Recently, a new version of the Mi Fit program was released, in which the developers made a mistake, due to which it is impossible to log into the account, the “log in” button is simply absent. We considered the solution to this problem in a separate article.
