How to delete your Quora account?

Here’s a question from one of our readers :

I have been using Quora for a while now, you know, to get my doubts clarified. But now that I am not that much active, I wanna get rid of my account so as to avoid unnecessary updates and notifications. What should I do to delete my account?

Thanks for the question. We had similar questions from a couple of users. Apparently,  Quora doesn’t let you delete your account altogether, but it just lets you deactivate it so that if you wanna get back to active, you can activate it back and start using. Here’s how you can deactivate it :

Deactivating quora account

  • Log into your Quora account.
  • In the top right corner, you will find Account button. Hit it.
  • Now, you will be navigated to the Account settings page.
  • Now in the right half of the page, you will be able to find a list of options listed under Account.
  • Select the deactivate option from that list.
  • Now an internal bubble will appear asking if you really want to deactivate your account. Hit deactivate once again.
  • That’s it. Now you are done deactivating your account.

That said, if you want to get rid of your account completely you need to send a mail to privacy at quora dot com citing reasons why you want to get rid of it. If they find them valid, they will take care of it for you. But  this method doesn’t work out most of the time and that’s why people go for deactivating their accounts.
