Is Flickr giving you a headache instead of being a help? Have you found a Flickr alternative that you'd like to stick with instead, like Photobucket or Google Photos? If so, you can shut down your Flickr account in a flash. This tutorial will give you step-by-step instructions on how to do it.
Those are the quick and concise steps for how to delete your Flickr account, but maybe you need a little more guidance. If so, read our detailed instructions with pictures below.
Go to Flickr.com in your web browser and log in.
Click your profile picture in the top-right corner, and then select Settings.
Under the Personal Information category (which you should have selected by default), next to the "Your Flickr Account" section, click Delete Your Flickr Account.
Flickr will warn you of what will happen when you delete your account. If you are sure that you wish to delete your Flickr account, click OK - Next.
Flickr will ask you to confirm that you really want to delete your Flickr account. If you do, click the check box here to mark it, acknowledging that deleting your account means permanently deleting all of the photos and videos that you have uploaded, as well as any other information that has been added to them. (Don't worry, though; it won't delete the original files if you still have them on your computer.)
Finish up by clicking Delete My Account.
That's it! Your Flickr account has been deleted. Before you go, here is a little more information about deleting your Flickr account that you may want to consider before going through with it.
