How to delete a Reddit account on the app

Reddit is a popular platform for creating and commenting on forums, which are each dedicated to a particular subject. It is a great place for finding like-minded people, and talking to them about your shared interests.

It’s also a good platform for asking queries, as the community is very responsive to questions, polls, and the like. As a result, people can use the platform for professional means, such as for market research purposes.

Consequently, it may be wise to have multiple accounts for different purposes. The app makes this easy to manage. It allows users to have multiple accounts on one app, and makes it easy for them to switch between accounts for ease of use.

The Reddit app conveniently allows users to browse the platform without an account, providing an option for ‘anonymous browsing’ in the settings. These same settings also allow users to add or remove accounts from the app as they wish. These processes are simple to do.

How to switch between accounts

Conclusion

In conclusion, deleting an account on the Reddit app is a very easy task. Likewise, adding an account is also easy to do. This makes adding and removing accounts on the app a worry-free task as they’re simple to accomplish, and easily reversible if you were to change your mind. This means users can add and remove accounts as frivolously as they wish.

There are no serious consequences for either of the tasks, other than an increase in app size when accounts are added. Although, the increase is fairly minimal so it’s usually not an issue.

There are no known limits to how many accounts you can add to the Reddit app, so there’s no need to worry about limitations to this feature.

Furthermore, switching between these accounts is also a very simple task, which makes using the app all the more convenient. As a result, you have no need to worry about requiring swift access to another account, for business purposes or otherwise.
