How do I permanently delete your Duolingo account?

Answered by Jason Smith

To permanently delete your Duolingo account, follow these steps:

1. Open the Duolingo app on your device.
2. Tap on the Profile tab, typically located at the bottom right corner of the screen.
3. In the Profile tab, you will see a Settings icon, usually represented by a gear or cogwheel. Tap on it to access the settings page.
4. Scroll down to the bottom of the settings page until you reach the “Delete Account” option.
5. Select the “Delete Account” option. Please note that this action is irreversible and will remove all your progress, history, and data associated with your Duolingo account.
6. Duolingo will then send an email to the address associated with your account to confirm your request for account deletion. You need to have access to this email address to proceed.
7. Check your email inbox for the email from Duolingo regarding the account deletion request. If you don’t find it in your inbox, check your spam or junk folder.
8. Open the email and follow the instructions provided to confirm the deletion of your Duolingo account.
9. After confirming the account deletion, your Duolingo account will be permanently erased, and you will lose all your data, including progress, streaks, and achievements.

It’s important to note that deleting your Duolingo account is a permanent action. If you decide to use Duolingo again in the future, you will need to create a new account from scratch.
