We are all aware of how vital a positive user experience is for businesses of any kind. Your role as an Online Store owner is to ensure the convenience of your visitors. Fortunately, WooCommerce comes with great built-in features that will allow you to easily configure your settings. In this guide, we are going to walk you through the "Account and Privacy" settings which when configured will promise satisfying customer experience. In case you are ready - let’s jump in!
In order to begin, please first log in to your WordPress Admin Dashboard and navigate through the left menu bar to WooCommerce > Settings and then switch to the "Account & Privacy" tab from the top menu bar.
Now, let’s move forward and stroll through each of the settings one by one. First, we will cover the account settings section where you will have to configure the following four options.
Next, to the "Guest Checkout" setting, you will notice two options that will include useful functionalities in your store.
From the "Account creation" setting you will be able to decide whether you would like to enable or disable the following options:
The "Account erasure requests" setting allows you to configure your data removal preferences.
And the last setting under this section - "Personal data removal" will allow you to enable the following option:
The settings you will find under this section will allow you to control how long your customer data will be kept under your Online Store before deletion. It is strongly recommended to consider consulting with a specialist in order to ensure you are in compliance with specific local regulations.

After you ensure all your settings are set up as you desire, please do not forget to click on the blue "Save changes" button in order to keep your preferences recorded.
