Yes, you can simply delete your ORCID account at orcid.org. We don’t recommend this, since we foresee a time when ORCIDs will be required for grant applications and by publishers. And an unused ORCID is not a problem, so we suggest keeping it until you need it.
For more information see the Research Guide, ORCID and Other Researcher Identifiers.
