How To Delete A StumbleUpon Account

Last updated: May 17, 2015 - 4:00pm EDT

Have you been stumbling around for a while on StumbleUpon and just can't seem to get anywhere fun?  If you've had enough of StumbleUpon, you can close up your account.

As a security measure, neither you nor anyone else can ask anyone at StumbleUpon to delete your account for you.  The only way to delete your StumbleUpon account is to do it yourself.  Here's how:

  1. Go to in your web browser and log in.

  2. Click your profile picture in the top-right corner, and click Settings.

  3. Click Privacy in the menu across the top, and then next to "Delete Account", click Click Here to Initiate Account Deletion.

  4. You will be asked to resubmit your password in order to confirm that you wish to delete your account.  Click in the box labelled "Confirm Password" and type in your account password, and then click Submit for Deletion.

Notes about deleting your StumbleUpon account

  • Your account on StumbleUpon is not immediately deleted.  There is a two-week grace period in which you can reactivate your account simply by logging into it again.

  • After the two-week grace period expires, your account will be permanently deleted.  This means that all "likes", "shares", "friends", "comments", and "lists" that you had on your StumbleUpon account will be completely gone.

  • Once your account has been deleted, nobody can use the username or email address associated with that account to create a new account. 

  • With that said, you do not need to delete your account and create a new one in order to change your username or email address on StumbleUpon; you can do this through the Settings page on your existing account.

That's pretty much all you need to know about deleting your account on StumbleUpon!
