Reddit is a popular platform that allows you to search, post, and comment to start a conversation or discussion. However, you may regret what you have posted or searched for in the past, and fortunately, you can delete this history easily.
You can permanently delete all posts and comments you have made one by one, and if you wish, you can follow this up by deleting your Reddit account as well.
Deleting Reddit’s search history is just as easy as deleting Amazon’s browsing history and only takes a few seconds.
Delete your Reddit history (post and comment)
You can delete your Reddit history by deleting your post, comment, or search one by one. To do so, open your Reddit profile and select the three-dots button on the post or comment you want to delete, and select Delete.
Here are detailed guides to deleting your Reddit history:
- Open Reddit and log into your account.
- Click your profile picture and username.
- Choose My profile.
- Now, here, you can switch to Posts, Comments, or other tabs depending on what Reddit history you would like to delete. Click the three-dots button for the post or comment you want to delete. Choose Delete.
- Click Delete Post to confirm.
By doing that, you delete the post or comment permanently, and there’s no way to recover them. Repeat this method for other posts or comments as well if you want to delete them.
If you get tired of deleting the Reddit history manually one by one, you can delete all of the Reddit posts and comment with just a single button with a Chrome extension.
Can you delete your Reddit history all at once?
There was a way to delete your Reddit history (post and comment) all at once by using a Chrome extension called “Nuke Reddit History”. Unfortunately, the extension has been flagged as malware by Microsoft Edge and is removed from the Chrome Web Store. So, you can’t delete your Reddit history all at once anymore.
UPDATE 6 JULY 2022: The extension has been deleted from Chrome Web Store, and a Reddit user experienced the extension was flagged as malware by Microsoft Edge. If you used it or currently use it, delete it now and then scan your PC with an anti-malware to protect your data.
On the download page, click Add to Chrome.
Click Add extension to install it.
Now, with this extension, you can delete all Reddit history at once. Simply log into your Reddit account, and open your profile page. Open the extension, then click Overwrite & Delete All My Comments and/or Delete All My Posts.
