Parity is asking for a password to delete an account, which I cannot give it. How do I get rid of the account?


This is very bad advice and you may lose ether if you're not sure of what you're doing, but I would:

  1. Find the keystore
  2. Make a backup of the keystore
  3. Find the JSON file for the account you want to remove
  4. Move that file to a different location on your hard drive
  5. Restart your browser

The account should disappear from Parity. I won't tell you where the keystore is because it's in different places on different operating systems.

Make sure to backup everything. Make sure to copy not delete the account file. Make sure you understand that you will lose ether if you delete the wrong file.
