Want to delete your WhatsApp account? AccountKiller provides easy instructions to delete your account on most websites. Or do you want to create an account on WhatsApp? Better first read if you can get rid of it, if you would ever want to!

How to delete your WhatsApp account

In WhatsApp, go to the main menu, Settings, Account, and choose the last option (Delete my account). This will remove everything. You will probably want to delete the app from your phone too.

TIP good to know

Publicly visible text/images often aren't properly deleted even when you succeed in deleting an account. Try editing or deleting them manually before deleting the account itself. If you're unsure what happens to your tracks: this can be found mostly in the Terms of Service/Privacy Policy; otherwise you can always contact WhatsApp and ask personally. By the way, deletion requests don't necessarily mean your data will actually be deleted (e.g. due to legal obligations).

TIP Remove third-party logins

If you signed up for WhatsApp using a third-party login such as Facebook or Twitter, you probably want to revoke all access from WhatsApp. Click the icon below to find out how.
