How do I delete my Quora account?
Quora allows users to delete their account if they choose to do so. Deleting your Quora account means that the following content will be removed from public view:
- Your profile including photos and bio
- Your answers
Questions you may have asked will remain, since questions on Quora are community owned, but will not be associated with your name publicly.
Deletion of your account is not reversible once the process is complete. Alternatives to deletion include:
- Edit your Quora Privacy Settings
- Deleting individual pieces of content, such as answers, comments, or posts
If you are certain you wish to delete your account, visit your account privacy settings and choose "Delete Account". It will ask you for your password in order to confirm the deletion (Note: if you created the account via Google or Facebook, you will first need to create a password by clicking the "Change Password" link near the top of the page, then clicking on "create an account password"). Once you confirm the deletion of your account, the account will be deactivated immediately and the deletion process will begin. If you login during the next 14 days, the account will be reactivated and deletion will be canceled.
If you have further questions regarding account deletion or you need your account to be deleted before the 14 day deactivation period, please let us know by contacting us via our contact form.
