Reddit has issues, just like other popular platforms out there. It has some controversial communities that influence the election. Once, the company enabled the tracking of the users and allow third parties to use the tracking data.
If you don’t like Reddit and would like to remove your traces inside the website, you can delete your Reddit account. But, in addition before doing so, you have to manually delete all of your posts and comments since deleting your account doesn’t delete your posts and comments altogether.

Simply open the Reddit website on your PC’s browser to delete your Reddit account. Login to your account.

Here, scroll down until the bottom of the page, or until you see the “Deactivate account” button. Click that button to delete your Reddit account.
You will be prompted with a message. You may need to enter your username and your password again to confirm. Checkmark “I understand that deactivated accounts are not recoverable”. Click Deactivate.
Click Deactivate to confirm.
Now, you’ve deleted your Reddit account.
