If you have decided to delete your Reddit account for whatever reason!, this article will help you in deleting your Reddit account permanently.
Please note that account deletion is referred to in Reddit as “Deactivation”, so once you deactivate your account, it will be gone and can’t be reactivated again.
Also, you can’t do deactivation (deletion!) on the mobile phone, you have to use a computer for this.
Let’s learn how to delete your Reddit account now.
How to Delete your Reddit Account
Here are the steps:
Step 1: Log in to your Reddit account and then hover your mouse over the username in the top right corner of the screen. A drop-down menu will appear. You have to click on “User Settings“.
Step 2: You will be presented with a list of options. Simply, scroll down to the bottom of the screen and you will see a section that is named “Deactivate Account“. You have to click on this link to move ahead.
Step 3: In the next screen, Reddit will ask you for the reason why you have decided to deactivate your account. It is optional so it up to you to fill it. Now, enter your account login information and make sure that the checkbox for the account deletion disclaimer is checked by you. Now click on the “Deactivate” button. Another confirmation pop-up will appear. You have to click “Deactivate” one more time for deleting the account. Your Reddit account will be gone forever.
