Deleting your account

Important: We completely remove all of your data when you delete your account.

Deleting guest comment information

  1. Unsubscribe from emails by replying to any notification with the word "unsubscribe" in response. See more ways here.
  2. Contact the site administrator. The website moderators are the only ones with the power to delete comments. They will be able to delete your comments for you, if desired.

Site-specific profiles

Some sites have their own login systems which integrate with Disqus. You'll know these profiles because they can only be logged into/used to comment on that particular site. Because these profiles aren't managed by Disqus, you will only be able to delete them through the site the profile belongs to.
