You can finally delete (and recreate) your Google Opinion Rewards account
- The latest version of the Google Opinion Rewards app lets you delete your account.
- This is useful for folks who would like to remove and recreate their account information to get more surveys.
- You have to be on the latest version of the app to see the account deletion option.
Google Opinion Rewards is an app that periodically asks you survey questions in exchange for credit on the Google Play Store. Each survey can earn you anywhere from $0.10 to a few dollars, depending on how long and personal the survey is.
However, once you sign up your information has been stuck that way, with no way to make changes or delete your account. This is particularly bothersome for people who moved to a new location after signing up, as your location effects the types of surveys you receive.
Now, finally, you can delete and recreate your Google Opinion Rewards account, as spotted by Android Police. There’s still no way to edit your current account, but deleting and then recreating it is an adequate substitute.
To delete your account, open the Google Opinion Rewards app and then tap the “hamburger” menu icon in the upper left-hand corner. Tap on Settings, and then you’ll see an option in red that says “Delete Opinion Rewards Account.” Tap that, and you’re on your way.
To sign up again, just re-open the Google Opinion Rewards app and go through the sign-up process once more.
One of the chief complaints of Google Opinion Rewards is that when you first sign up, you tend to get a lot of surveys, and thus earn a lot of Play Store credits. As time goes by, you get fewer surveys or sometimes none at all. Some people haven’t received surveys in years. This new account deletion option may help rectify that, as a fresh sign-up might get the surveys flowing.
However, it could be that you aren’t getting surveys because you have certain settings tweaked for privacy. Google Opinion Rewards uses your GPS location, for example, to ask you questions about places you’ve been. If you have this turned off, you won’t get those surveys. So if you go through the deletion/renewal process and still find you’re not getting any surveys, you might have to play with your settings.
