Is it possible to delete your account?

Sadly, I don't believe that it is possible to delete your account, just in case you want to come back later it will still be there for you. I think the closest you can come is deleting all possible About Me/etc information and setting it so that people can't VM you.

Dez is right, you cannot delete or deactivate your account. You can remove all information from your profile though, about me, pictures etc, and that's the closest you will come. I hope this is helpful, if you have any more questions feel free to let me know.

No there is not a way to delete your account. We don't delete accounts on here because people do leave TH and come back so your account is here for when you need to log on etc.

As said, you cannot delete your account. When you signed up to join the site, you agreed to our terms of service, which addresses it here:
The user understands that TeenHelp does not remove or edit the user's account or content in the eventuality that the user regrets submitting it.
If you wish to leave the site, you can remove your information to make it anonymous. Hope this answered your question. I'm going to close this thread, however feel free to message me if you have any other questions or wish to have this reopened.
