    Simply delete the QDF files after you exit Q ... that's where it's stored.  Be sure to get .QDF-Backup also

    If the original question is about removing personal data from the Quicken servers, deleting the QDF files from the local desktop will not address that.  I would delete the cloud datasets first using these instructions via a blank Quicken file, then contact Quicken to see if they have some type of data deletion mechanism.  They do for California residents.
    Let's hope one of the Quicken moderators will chime in here as well for suggestions.
