How to Deactivate your Reddit Account
Deactivating your Reddit account also means to delete that account. Your username cannot be recycled and your account is not recoverable once you deactivated it. Therefore, you should think carefully before deciding to deactivate your account. Please note that while your account is deleted, all of the posts and comments you've made on Reddit still remain. If you wish to delete your content as well, you need to remove them individually. This article shows you how to deactivate or delete your Reddit account.
How to deactivate a Reddit account
Step 1: Go to https://www.reddit.com and log into your account.
Step 2: Click on your username in the upper-right corner of the page.
Step 3: Select User Settings from the drop-down menu.
Step 4: Scroll to the bottom and click Deactivate Account.
Step 5: Enter your username and password into the blanks to confirm that you are the owner of the account.
Step 6: Check the box next to I understand that deactivated accounts are not recoverable.
Step 7: Click Deactivate.
Once your account is deactivated, you can't recover it. You won't be able to use the same username to create a new Reddit account. To resuming the use of Reddit, you will have to create a new account with a different available username.
