How to Delete Your Quora Account

If you’ve decided to delete your Quora account, it’s essential to understand the process and implications. Deleting your Quora account will remove the following content from public view:

  • Your profile, including photos and bio
  • Your answers
  • Comments
  • Posts
  • Votes
  • Endorsements
  • Messages

Note that any questions you have asked will remain since questions on Quora are community-owned, but they will no longer be associated with your name publicly.

Irreversibility of Account Deletion

Once you delete your account, the process is irreversible. Therefore, consider alternatives such as:

  • Deactivation
  • Editing your Quora Privacy Settings
  • Deleting individual pieces of content like answers, comments, or posts

Steps to Delete Your Quora Account

If you are certain about deleting your account, follow these steps:

  1. Visit your account privacy settings and select “Delete Account”.
  2. Enter your password to confirm the deletion. If you signed up using Google or Facebook, create a password by clicking the “”Change Password”” link and then “create an account password”.
  3. Confirm the deletion. Your account will be deactivated immediately, and the deletion process will start.

If you log in during the next 14 days, the account will be reactivated, and the deletion process will be canceled. After the 14-day grace period, your content and profile will be permanently deleted, and personal data associated with your account will be removed from Quora’s databases.

Legal Considerations and Data Preservation

As described in Quora’s Privacy Policy, your data may be preserved if necessary to comply with legal obligations. Also, content you shared may still exist outside the Quora Platform. Account deletion on Quora does not remove links or data hosted by others. However, under Quora’s Terms of Service, users republishing content from Quora must delete it upon request if it has been deleted on Quora.
