Currently, you can only delete your Reddit account by visiting Reddit on your computer’s web browser or through our iOS native mobile app. Once you delete your account, it can’t be reactivated, your username will become unavailable, and you’ll lose access to your account and all of your post and comment history. So before you delete your account, please be absolutely sure.
A few helpful things to know before you delete your account:
- Deleting your account doesn’t delete any posts or comments you’ve made. If you’d like to delete your posts or comments before you delete your account, check out the FAQs about removing your Reddit data.
- If you’re a Reddit Premium member, deleting your account won’t cancel your subscription, so make sure to cancel your Reddit Premium subscription beforehand.
- To confirm the deletion of your account, you’ll need to enter your Reddit password. If you receive an error while trying to delete your account, double-check to make sure you entered your password correctly.
- If you’re still running into deletion errors, try some of our troubleshooting tips.
- Reddit administrators can’t delete an account on your behalf.
How you delete your account is slightly different depending on which platform you’re on:
- Visit your Account Settings and scroll down to the Delete Account section and click Delete Account.
- If your account was created with your Google account or Apple ID, scroll down to the Connected Accounts section and click disconnect next to the Google account or Apple ID you signed up with. If you don’t have a password yet, you’ll be asked to create one.
- Visit the delete tab of your preferences.
- Enter your username and password and confirm your deletion before clicking delete account.
On the iOS app
- Tap on your avatar to open up your profile menu.
- Select Settings, then under Support, tap Delete account.
