Does Deleting My Reddit Account Delete My Comments and Posts?

Date Published:

No. Deleting your Reddit account does not delete your comments and posts. It only anonymizes your content.

Reddit retains your comments and posts, but your username is replaced with [deleted].

Most social media services delete your content when you delete your account, so this behavior is surprising to most users.

You may want to delete all your comments and posts before deleting your Reddit account. For instructions, check out our post on how to delete all your Reddit content and follow the instructions before deleting your account.

If you’ve been on Reddit a long time or post regularly, you must request your data from Reddit to locate all your posts and comments. See our post on downloading your Reddit data for instructions on requesting your data.
