What Can Go Wrong When You Delete Your Duolingo Account Yourself

While your account is deactivated, your username and other personal information will be reserved to ensure that no one else can use it. At any time, you can reactivate your account, and pick right up where you left off.

When you delete your account, you are completely removing all of your data and personal information from Duolingo's system.
