figshare is a very safe place — Nobody can delete figshare articles after their publication, this also includes the owner of the account responsible for the upload of contents into the cloud. Feeling regret after uploading and publishing anything on figshare is futile. Nonetheless, you can also get a provisional doi before deciding to publish the article — their contents will be public (forever and ever) after you decide to click —> |“Yes, publish”|
