Tired of using Clubhouse? Here's how you can delete your account
Joining Clubhouse may be difficult, but leaving the platform might be even harder. Here's the only official way to delete your account permanently.
Social audio app Clubhouse took the world by storm at a time when most of us were at home, under strict lockdown restrictions and needed to hear people across the world instead of simply scrolling through walls of text on social media.
But with the world now opening up alongside vaccinations, the lack of an Android app and several alternative services (like Twitter Spaces and Telegram's Voice Chats) from rival companies on the horizon, there are several reasons why one might want to delete their Clubhouse account.
Just like Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, Clubhouse discourages you from deleting your account, instead offering you the option to ‘Deactivate’ your account. This can be achieved very easily from the app’s settings menu.
However, if you want to delete your account permanently, you’ll have to go through a few more steps. It actually involves sending an email to the company and requesting that your account be deleted.
Here’s how you can permanently delete your Clubhouse account:
1. Open the Clubhouse app and tap on your profile photo at the top right corner.
2. On your profile, you should see a gear icon in the same location where your profile photo was on the previous screen.
3. Now tap on the Account menu.
4. You should now see a button to deactivate your account under two options to connect/disconnect your Twitter and Instagram accounts.
Clubhouse says that once you deactivate your account, you can log back within 30 days, before the company permanently disables your account. But while this will make all your data inaccessible, disabling is not the same as deleting your account. If you want to delete your account, you have to email the company.
