How to delete your Reddit account and history

Remove yourself from the equation.

Published onMarch 23, 2024

After you’ve gotten used to the ins and outs of posting on Reddit, it’s easy to go down the rabbit hole and start posting and commenting everywhere. If and when you want to delete your account, however, it can be difficult to delete everything you’ve posted. When you delete your account, all your posts and comments stay on the platform unless you manually delete them. Let’s go over how to delete your Reddit account, as well as all of your posts and comments.


To delete your Reddit account, go to User Settings and scroll down to the bottom. Click Delete Account, then enter your username and password. Click Delete when you're sure you want to delete your account.


How to delete your Reddit account


  • Go to and log into your account. Click your profile picture in the top right.
  • Click Settings.
  • Make sure you are on the Account tab in User settings.
  • Scroll down to the bottom, then click DELETE ACCOUNT.
  • On the We’re sorry to see you go page, you can enter your reason for leaving in the HELP IMPROVE REDDIT box. Enter your account’s username and password in the VERIFY YOUR IDENTITY section, then click the checkbox next to I understand that deleted accounts aren’t recoverable.
  • If you haven’t done so already, you should make sure that you’ve deleted all of your posts and comments. Otherwise, even though you’ve deleted your account, your old posts and comments will remain on the platform for others to see—and possibly take advantage of.
  • Click DELETE.
  • You will get one final warning on the Delete account pop-up. Click DELETE to finish deleting your Reddit account.

Android & iOS

  • Go to the Reddit app on your phone. Tap the profile in the top right and choose Settings.
  • Scroll down to Delete account.

How to delete all Reddit history at once (Chrome extension)

Typically, your content goes with you when you delete any social media account. However, due to the nature of how posts and comments work on Reddit, all of your content will stay on the platform even after you’ve deleted your account.

If you want to remove all of your posts and comments when you delete your account, you’ll need to do so manually—unless you are a Google Chrome user. If you don’t use Chrome, you must go into your Reddit history and delete every comment and post you’ve ever published.

If you are a Chrome user, however, you can take a shortcut: Bulk Delete Reddit Posts & Comments History.
