How to Close a Wattpad Account

Are you looking to delete or close your Wattpad account? While Wattpad is a fantastic online writing community, you may be wanting to delete your account and move on. This minHour article teaches you how to close your Wattpad account using a web browser. You can't close your account using the mobile app or a mobile web browser, so you'll need to be near a computer.


Go to and log in.

You can use any desktop computer web browser to close your account including Chrome, Safari, and Firefox.

  • You can’t use the app or a mobile browser to close your account.

Click your username.

It’s in the top right corner of the web browser and will prompt a menu to drop down.

Click Settings.

You’ll see this near the bottom of the menu.

Click Close Account.

It’s a red button on the right side of the “Settings” page.

Fill in the required information.

You’ll have to select a reason to explain why you’re leaving and type a response to “What could we have done better”.

  • That information is mandatory for a few reasons: to give Wattpad a better picture of what makes users leave and to show that it’s really you closing the account instead of a bot.

Click to check the box next to “Yes, I’m sure.

It’s a checkbox below the mandatory fields.

Enter your password.

This is to further verify that you’re closing the account instead of someone else.

Click Close Account.

You’ll be able to click on this once you finish filling in everything else on the page.

  • Sign in with your username and password again and the account will be reactivated.
  • Don’t sign in to see if your account has been closed because signing in will reactivate it again. Instead, go to (insert your Wattpad username at the end of that link in place of “yourusername”) and look for the “User not found” message.
