How To Delete Your VSCO Account

VSCO is short for “Visual Supply Company” and was created as a niche app for photographers to display their work.

How To Delete Your VSCO Account

While VSCO is a great app with a very strong community, it’s definitely not for everyone. Its skew towards artistry and contemporary photography makes it ill-suited for more casual users. And although the membership fee is reasonable at just $19.99 a year, it does cost money to have a professional membership on the site.

If you have been using VSCO and have decided that it’s no longer the site for you, then this article will show you how to delete your account.

How to Deactivate Your VSCO Account

Deleting a VSCO account is, fortunately, very simple. However, before doing so, you may want to take a few extra steps to make sure your account information and content is removed.

Let’s take a look at how to clear your account content and deactivate your account once and for all.

Delete Your Images from VSCO

The first step in really removing yourself from VSCO is the deletion of your content. When you deactivate your membership, VSCO tends to hold on to your account information. So, to completely quit the platform, you have to get rid of your content manually.

  1. Open the VSCO app on your device and ensure you are logged in.
  2. Select the face icon in the bottom right to access your profile.
  3. Select an image and tap the three-dot icon in the top right.
  4. Select Delete to remove the image.

You may also need to remove images that other people have added to their collection.

  1. Open the VSCO app on your device and make sure you are logged in.
  2. Select the face icon in the bottom right to access your profile.
  3. Select the bell icon and select the image you want to remove.
  4. Select the “-” icon to remove it from the collection.
  5. Confirm your choice to remove it.

Since you have to remove each picture manually, this process can be quite time-consuming. However, if you want to fully remove yourself from VSCO, it is a necessary step.

Delete Your VSCO Account

Once your photos have been cleared out, you have two options if you no longer want to use VSCO: you can deactivate your profile and leave it dormant, or you can deactivate it permanently.

To deactivate your VSCO profile:

  1. Log into your VSCO account and navigate to this deactivation page.
  2. Select Deactivate VSCO profile and follow the wizard.
  3. Confirm the deactivation of your VSCO profile.

Deactivating your VSCO profile will remove your Grid, Collection, and Journal from public view but will leave your account intact. It will essentially be dormant but still live.

To deactivate your VSCO profile and your account:

  1. Log into VSCO and navigate to this page. It is the same page as above.
  2. Select Deactivate VSCO Profile & Account and follow the wizard.
  3. Confirm the deactivation of your VSCO account.

If you would prefer to delete your VSCO account via email, you can:

  1. Email [email protected] and add the subject “Delete my VSCO account.” This may take longer than doing it via the website.

Note that deactivating your account doesn’t actually delete the account. You will no longer be able to access any resources you had or any purchases you made. (You may want to download whatever resources you’re going to need before doing it so you don’t lose them.)

You can reactivate your account simply by logging in again. This means that all you are doing by deactivating your account is stopping yourself from being able to use it. If you can reactivate an account, it must still be present in order to be reactivated. This isn’t ideal, from a privacy perspective, which is why if you really want to wipe your account, you need to delete all your images first.

Final Thoughts

Deleting social media profiles is often unnecessarily complex. Fortunately, doing so on VSCO is very straightforward, and by following the steps listed above, you can deactivate your account temporarily or permanently.
