How to Delete Your Quora Account

If you’re ready to say goodbye to your Quora profile, deleting your account is a straightforward process. By deleting your account, you will remove all personal data, including your profile, answers, and posts from Quora. Here’s how you can permanently delete your account and ensure all your data is removed.

Understanding What Deleting Your Account Means

Deleting your account from Quora will result in the removal of:

  • Your profile details, including photos and bio
  • All answers and comments you’ve made
  • Your posts and votes
  • Endorsements and private messages

It’s important to note that any questions you posted will remain visible, as they are community-owned, but they won’t be linked to your name.

Steps to Delete Your Account

To initiate the deletion process:

  1. Go to your account privacy settings.
  2. Select ‘Delete Account’.
  3. You will be prompted to enter your password to confirm the deletion. If your account was created through Google or Facebook, you must first set a standalone Quora password.

Remember, once you confirm deletion, your account is immediately deactivated. If you log back in within 14 days, the deletion is canceled.

Permanent Account Deletion

After a 14-day grace period, if you have not logged in, your account and all associated content will be permanently erased. Please note that while your personal data is removed from Quora’s databases, some information might be preserved to comply with legal requirements.

Considerations After Account Deletion

Content you’ve shared on Quora could still exist through republishing or external sharing. Quora’s policy requires that any republished content must be removed upon request if the original content is deleted on the platform.
