How to Delete Your Account

It has been nearly six years since hit the market and made a splash. Unfortunately, it failed to maintain its popularity and would meet its finale only a few short years after.

It may have you wondering after all this time.

The answer is simple. You can do it yourself (although it would require a significant amount of your time and effort), or you can use DoNotPay to do it for you. All you have to do is fill out a few details, and DoNotPay will have the job done in minutes. Even better, DoNotPay can also take care of other old accounts, including but not limited to eHarmony and Uber.

Why You Should Delete Your Account

Like any old account, it's essential to learn since it's no longer in use. While peaked in popularity around 2015 for its unique mix of social media, music, and self-expression in videos, there have since been more successful platforms on the market. It has led to the downfall of and its eventual merger with TikTok.

Out With the Old, In With the New

If you didn't already know, your account transferred to TikTok. It is likely because more users have migrated to the new platform over the older (and honestly, more outdated) short-clip video-making platform.

It can become problematic for those who forgot about their accounts and created new accounts with TikTok. If you're also a user that has acquired a substantial following, this inconvenience may confuse your audience and lead some users to the old account where you're not active.

Deleting your old account will eliminate any potential for that confusion.

How to Delete Your Account on Your Own

Even if you remember your username and password, you will not be able to access your old TikTok videos on the platform anymore. You will have to work with TikTok to complete the task.

To do it without logging into your (now TikTok) account, you can fill out a form to get the account removed:

Fill out the form on TikTok by providing your email, describing the action you want to take (i.e., deleting your old account), and then submitting it to the support team.

This option will require some wait time between filling out the form and waiting for a response. You may also want to consider going in and deleting your account yourself if you remember your username and password:

  1. Sign in to your account in TikTok.
  2. Go to your profile by clicking on it at the bottom right corner of your screen.
  3. You will then see a 3-lined icon on the top right — select it.
  4. Click on 'Manage Account' and choose 'Delete Account.'
  5. The site or app will guide you through the confirmation processing for deleting your account.

You should note that while these steps will be the same for the website and app, you should not assume your account is deleted just because you deleted the app. You must delete your account before you delete the app to remove it.

Alternative Ways to Delete Your Account

The last thing you want to do in deleting your account is to remember your old login details. However, if you want to take that path, here are some things you may do:

Password ManagerYou’re lucky if you have used a password manager for a long time. Open your password manager and locate the account you want to delete. It’s too easy to log back into the account and delete it.
EmailAccess the email you have used to register for the account. Check if you have saved a copy of your login details to your inbox folder.
Recovering PasswordsAccess the website where you want to delete your account. Click on “Forgot Password?” and follow the prompts. Hope that the mobile number or email address you are using now is the same as what is registered on your account.

If you don’t want to do the above-stated processes, let DoNotPay do the work for you.
