How to Delete Kakao Account the Easy Way
People have a tendency to want to change their minds about some of the accounts they have and eventually want to delete them. Companies keep a lot of data on their customers and if you don't want to use a site anymore, deleting your account helps ensure they don't keep your data. We'll show you if you don't want to use their Internet service anymore.
It is especially important to delete your account with social media companies because they have a lot of personal information about you on file. You may also want to delete unused email or social media accounts. DoNotPay can help you delete all of these accounts easily.
How to Delete Kakao Account on Your Own
Kakao allows users to delete their accounts themselves, but it's not as straightforward of a process as you might want it to be. Kakao offers different services—including Kakao Talk, Kakao Story, and Kakao Games—and before you can you need to unregister from all the Kakao services that you use.
Here's what's involved in deleting your Kakao account:
- When you unregister from Kakao Talk and Kakao Story, your Kakao Account will also be deleted—as long as you don't have any other services linked to your Kakao Account.
Note that your account won't be deleted immediately if it would result in financial issues or impact other people's use of Kakao services, even if you don't have any other services linked to your Kakao account.
- You can delete your Kakao Account through the Delete Kakao Account page, to which you have access after unregistering from Kakao Talk and Kakao Story.
If you get a message that your account won't be deleted after unregistering from those services, you may delete your account from the Delete Kakao Account page.
- If you have unregistered from Kakao Talk and Kakao Story, your Kakao account can be deleted by clicking a link on the Help page.
- You will receive an account deletion email after deleting your account, but if you can't receive the email because you have already deleted the account, you must go to Delete Kakao Account > Confirm Your Kakao Account Email > Edit Email, and change your email address to receive the email.
