Questions & Answers

What happens when I delete my account?

Reddits deactivation link is the same as account deletion. When you delete your account, your profile is no longer visible to other users and disassociated from content you posted under that account. Please note, the posts, comments, and messages you submitted prior to deleting your account will still be visible to others unless you first delete the specific content.

I forgot my password but never verified my email. Can I still reset my password?

No. There is currently no way to reset your password unless you have an e-mail address registered. Nobody else can assist you either, the admins will not reset your password for you. If you have forgotten it and you haven't registered an email address, there is nothing you can do. If you're still able to login to Reddit via saved login details on an existing device, that means the device's browser remembers your password. You can try looking in your browser's settings to extract the saved password.
