When you joined Clubhouse you probably had to save the invitation only for the audio social media app. But to delete your account, you’ll have to jump off some hoops, because Clubhouse doesn’t make it easy. Here’s what you need to do.

First, let’s explain some of the terms. Although deleting, deactivating, and deactivating your account are often used interchangeably in the context of social media accounts, there are important differences that you need to take note of. Also keep in mind that each platform (such as Facebook or Twitter) handles different ways to deactivate and delete. We are talking about the clubhouse in particular.

How to permanently delete your clubhouse account and data.

The process of permanently deleting your Clubhouse account and, consequently, deleting your data is not as simple as deleting your Facebook account, where the user has the option to permanently delete it.

Clubhouse actually forces you to email their support team (support@alphaexplorationco.com) or submit a request through their support form and request that they delete your user data. It is, of course, deeply rooted in their privacy policy. Sending an email is easy, but the option to delete your information should be as simple as pressing a button.

To add fuel to the fire, there is no way to tell how long it will take them to process your request, or even whether they are complying with your request. It is hoped that Clubhouse will make account deletion easier and more transparent in the future. Until then, that’s the only way to get it.

This is another good reminder that you should always be careful about what you share online and what personal data you pass on to companies that do not have your best interests at heart.
