Delete Wattpad Account to Protect Your Private Information

Wattpad is a platform intended for users to read and write original content. It's often used for writing fanfiction and fantasy stories or poems, but some stories on Wattpad have gone on to be published novels.

Even if you haven't forgotten your password and just don't use the account anymore, it's a good idea to get rid of it due to data privacy reasons. Most platforms and websites will keep and store your data for as long as you have an account with them.

Fortunately, DoNotPay can help you easily even if you don't have access to it, or if you simply don't want to go through the complicated process yourself.

Reasons to Delete Your Wattpad Account

  • An unmonitored account can cause a lot of issues when it comes to data privacy.

  • Someone may be able to hack into your unused account and retrieve information you don't want them to have.

  • Some stories you used to read and/or write when you first created the account may be a little embarrassing to keep on your profile.

Not only that, but you won't have to deal with emails about who's writing what and when if you manage to get your account deleted.
