  2. From your main screen on Vine, tap the head icon to access your profile.
  3. From your Vine profile screen, tap Settings.
  4. Scroll down to the "Support" section and tap Deactivate Account.
  5. Tap Deactivate in the window that pops up to confirm your account deletion.

Need us to cut you more slack?  The instructions below will show you where to look for everything that you need to tap, plus give you cues when the instructions differ for Apple or Windows devices.

Detailed instructions on how to delete your Vine account

1. Launch the Vine application and log into your Vine account.

How to deactivate your Vine account

5. Confirm that you wish to deactivate your Vine account.

A window will pop up informing you that your profile and videos on Vine will be hidden from everyone else after you deactivate your account, and that your account will be permanently deleted in about a month.  If you're sure that you want to delete your Vine account, tap Deactivate.

How to confirm that you wish to delete your Vine account

(NOTE: If you change your mind and wish to continue using Vine, just log back into your Vine account within 30 days after deactivating your account, and your account deletion will be cancelled.)


That's how to delete your Vine account if you're tired of being caught in its time loops!
