In this guide check out how to delete WeChat Account and ID completely from your phone/tablet.
Ever since I wrote about ‘how to delete WeChat history’ people have emailed me, commented on the blog post how can we delete WeChat account permanently from their database. So for them, I have come up with this article along with the video as well.
Delete WeChat Account
WeChat is popular Instant Messenger which allows sending voice, video and text messages. WeChat is available for popular platforms like iOS, Android, Windows Phone, BlackBerry, Symbian and coming up for Firefox OS/Ubuntu OS.
Surprisingly there is no direct process to completely the WeChat Account or WeChat ID through Apps or website. But if you want to stay away from WeChat you can do it by uninstalling the app by going to Settings > Applications > tap on WeChat and then hit Uninstall.
Now this will delete WeChat app from your phone only and this guide works for any iPhone, Android phones, and tablets. If you want to delete your mobile number, email ID from the WeChat database, follow the process mentioned below.
You need to send an email to official WeChat support team and to help you with that I have email format ready for you here –
From: Your Wechat Email or Mobile Number To: firstname.lastname@example.org CC: email@example.com
These are the details and in the email mention subject & message body asEmail Subject: Account Removal Request and personal information deletion Message Body: [let them know that you want your account details removed and any reasons why]
Once upon the email is sent, you will receive a confirmation email from WeChat team & WeChat team will act accordingly.
This trick works for all Android phones likes –
- Samsung Galaxy S8, S7, S6, S5, S4, Note 3(all Galaxy models)
- HTC One all models
- Sony Xperia all models
- LG, Motorola, Karbonn, Micromax, Blu phones
- iOS devices like iPhone 7, 7 Plus, 6S, 6, 5S/5C,5, 4S, 3GS, iPad, iPod, iPad Mini, iPad Air
Update: We have received lot many comments on our Videos and as well as article here. WeChat is troubling a lot of people in terms of deleting their account. Some of the people’s account hasn’t been deleted. I hope WeChat representatives are keeping an eye on this page.
Important: You can’t delete WeChat if it has come up pre-installed on your device. You can disable it by going to Settings > Apps > WeChat and then tap on Disable for Android and something similar for iOS devices.
