How to delete a BeReal
BeReal is a relatively new social media platform that’s all the craze right now, with the app’s user base growing exponentially in 2022.

How to delete a BeReal
Go to your BeReal feed and tap on the three vertical dots icon next to your BeReal. Tap on Delete my BeReal, select why you want to delete it, and tap on the confirmation button.
As the warning says, you can delete your photo only once, so be careful when you re-take the picture. Even though you will still see the delete option, the button doesn’t work. You have two minutes to take a photo and can re-take it until you post it to your timeline, so make sure you don’t capture anything you don’t want to show.

Yes, you can take another photo to replace your deleted picture. But keep in mind that you can only do this once.
If it’s your second picture after deleting the first one, you will not be able to delete it. However, if the delete button isn’t working, close and relaunch the app to fix the bug.
If you’ve deleted your account and want to reactivate it, log in to the app again within 15 days of your deletion request. The request will automatically be canceled. However, your account will be permanently deleted after 15 days, so you’ll have to create a new one.
