If you’re no longer interested in using Reddit, it’s easy to delete your account. Whether you want to close your account due to security reasons, or because you no longer want to engage with the platform, you can do so without any hassle.

Here is how to delete your Reddit account:

Before proceeding, ensure that you’re using a desktop browser, either on Mac or Windows. Mobile devices or the Reddit mobile app can’t be used to deactivate your account.

Step 1: Sign in to your Reddit account

First, head to and sign in to your account by entering your login credentials.

Step 2: Go to user settings

Once you’re logged in, navigate to the top-right corner of the screen and click on your username. This will display a dropdown menu. From there, click on “User Settings.”

Step 3: Find “Deactivate Account”

After entering user settings, scroll down the page until you find the “Deactivate Account” option in the left-hand menu. Click on it.

Step 4: Verify your account

When you click on “Deactivate Account,” Reddit will ask you to verify your account. Follow the instructions given to do so.

Step 5: Confirm account deactivation

Once you’ve verified your account, click on “Deactivate” to confirm the deactivation process.

Your account will be deactivated immediately, and Reddit will remove all the public content you’ve created on the platform. Keep in mind that you won’t be able to reactivate the account, and all the posts and comments you’ve made will be removed permanently.

Final Words

Deleting your Reddit account is a simple process that only requires a few clicks. Ensure that you’re signed in to your account through a desktop browser, and follow the above-mentioned steps to get the job done. Always consider backing up important data, such as messages or posts, before deleting your account.
