Here is a step by step illustrated tutorial for how to delete your Vingle account. The good news is that it's easy to do. You don't need to contact them or do anything complicated. You can do everything right from your account.
Before moving on, have you thought about a replacement for Vingle? If you're looking for ideas, here are some alternatives to Vingle for writing. If instead of writing you're using Vingle as a form of social media to connect with others, then you might like to consider these social media alternatives.
You'll need to do these steps in a browser and not on the phone app. This is because there is no way to delete your account on the Vingle phone app. Even if you log out of the phone app and uninstall it, your Vingle account still exists.
If you do not have access to a laptop or computer, don't worry! Instead of the app, just use your phone browser to go to the Vingle site at https://www.vingle.net
The steps below work the same on a phone browser, laptop, or computer.
1. Log into Vingle and go to Settings
First log into Vingle, then click on your profile symbol (at top right on most browsers) and a drop-down menu will appear, as shown in the image below. Click on Settings in that menu.
2. Scroll down and click on "deactivate account"
Once you're in the account settings page, scroll down and you'll see a link saying "deactivate account" as shown in the image below. It's discreet so you might need to look a bit, but it's there!
3. Confirm deactivation
After clicking on Deactivate account, a box will pop up asking you to confirm this. You'll need to enter your username. There is a box you can check if you want your Vingle content to be deleted as well. Then simply click the Deactivate button, and you're done! Your Vingle account is deleted.
Final thoughts on deleting your Vingle account
Vingle calls it deactivating your account, but that's the same as deleting. It's permanent, so you can't simply log in again if you change your mind. This is why they put up the confirmation box to enter your details - it's to prevent you from accidentally deleting your account.
