How to remove 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.


Helpful Trick: Removing online data

Publicly visible text/images often aren’t properly removed even when you succeed in removing an account. Try editing or removing them manually before removing 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, removal requests don’t necessarily mean your data will actually be removed (e.g. due to legal obligations).
