How to Delete a Depop Account The Easy Way

Depop is an app that allows users to sell their old apparel and accessories with just a few simple tools. It's also easy to shop with an efficient tagging system and easy payment processes. The only thing that's not so simple is trying to figure out !

Pretty much every account, from social media to dating sites, usually requires your password to close it. Maybe you have your password, but still can't figure out how to delete your Depop account. In both cases, DoNotPay can help.

How Can I Delete My Depop Account By Myself?

If you're ready to , you'll need to:

1. Type in your password to sign in.

2. Visit the settings page.

3. Click on the support option.

4. Type "delete" into the search bar at the top of the page and click on the support article that appears.

5. Click on 'Send us a request'. You'll need to provide your username, email address, and the reason why you want to delete the account.

6. Submit your request and wait for a staff member to close your account.

While it seems easy enough, you could encounter several problems during this process. You might need to recover your password first before you can even send in a request.

Some people can't easily recover their passwords because the reset links are sent to an inactive email address. You also can't switch over to a new email address if you've forgotten the name of that old email account.

Once you send a request, you'll need to wait for a Depop staff member to respond. This could take several days depending on the volume of previous requests in the support queue.

Some users have the opposite problem: a Depop account being deleted without their consent. Depop can terminate your account at any time for:

  • Failure to respond to a dispute (even if the message was delivered while you were locked out of your account!)
  • Receiving payment off of the platform
  • You've opened too many accounts in the past that were closed
  • Failure to verify account information

Sometimes your account is wrongfully terminated because of a simple error. If you'd like your account back, DoNotPay is on your side with our Unban Account product.

Reasons to Delete a Depop Account

Did you know that an inactive account is usually the first target for hackers? These accounts are often several years old, created before stricter password guidelines were implemented. That means it's even easier for fraudsters to get your personal information… especially if it seems that you've forgotten about your account!

In light of recent hacking events, some users don't even feel safe using their active Depop accounts. According to the BBC, several users have had their information stolen due to "credential stuffing."

This is when scammers use bots to autofill login credentials quickly on several websites. They've obtained that information from data breaches on other websites. If you have an inactive account anywhere else, it could be used to sabotage your active accounts!
