Deleting posts from your Reddit account is super easy, however, if you’re trying to delete a post using your mobile device, then you’re probably having a hard time trying to figure out how to do it.
Don’t worry, it happened to me as well on an Android phone, the only thing I could do was hide the post using the “Hide” option that shows up when you tap on the three-dot menu button that you’ll see located right next to the upvote button below your post’s title.
If you’re using a mobile device and you want to get rid of a Reddit post right away, you won’t be able to do it, but you can use the “Hide” option to temporarily limit access to that specific post until you get a hold of a desktop or laptop computer where you’ll be able to completely delete the post so that no one can ever see it or read it again.
To permanently delete a post from Reddit you will need to access your account using a PC.
If you already have a desktop or laptop computer that you can use to access your account right now, then all you have to do is follow the steps below to get the job done in a couple of minutes:
How to Delete Reddit Posts
- Go to Reddit.com and login to your account if you haven’t already.
- Now go to your account page by clicking on your username link on the upper right-hand side of the screen.
- Click on “Posts”.
- Click on the “delete” link that you will see below your username within the post.
- Now confirm that you really want to delete the post by clicking on the “Yes” link next to where it says “are you sure?”.
As you can see permanently deleting posts from Reddit is both possible and simple, just make sure that you’re using the web version instead of the mobile version, or otherwise you won’t be able to do it.
I haven’t tried deleting posts on the mobile app because I don’t actually use it, maybe it is possible, so make sure to check it out if you’re using the app, it could make things a whole lot easier. Especially for people like me who love to access Reddit.com using a mobile device.
