- On the next screen, click the Gear icon located at the top right corner to open your account settings.
- Scroll down to the bottom of the account settings page, and click on “Delete Account.”
- After doing that, Badoo will then give you some options of other things you can do instead of deleting your account. You can accept one of these options and stay on Badoo, or click ‘Delete Your Account.’
- After that, you’ll then click on “Continue.”
- Badoo will now offer you a free trial of Badoo Super Powers for three days if you decide to stay. If you want to take advantage of this, click “Get Free Super Powers”. If you still want to continue with deleting your account, click on “Delete Your Account” located at at the bottom of the window.

And that’s how easy it is!
Badoo will therefore send you an email to confirm the deletion of your account. If you still want to change your mind, you can still re-activate your account within 30 days of deletion. To do so, you need to open the email from Badoo and click the button that says “Recover your Profile.”
Now we’re going to take this account deletion bit by bit, depending on the device you’re using. What am I trying to say? Due to the fact that there are users operating with their PC while others are using Smartphones (Android/iOS). So we’re going to take you through each of the device’s steps.
Deleting the Account on Android/iOS
Whether you’re using an Android or iOS device, follow the steps below:

- Doing this will direct you to another page where you’ll have to delete your Badoo account.
- You’ll then be asked to log out of your account by entering your password.
- Then click on “Delete Account.”
- After that, you’ll be asked to provide a reason why you want to delete your account.
- Since you’re upon account deletion, you’ll have to ignore the Premium offer and confirm your account deletion.
- Having done that, you’ll then receive a notification confirming tha your account has been deleted.
Deleting the Account on PC
This method is quite different from that of Smartphone devices, reason being that the above steps can be done via the Badoo app whereas you need to go through the Badoo website in order to delete your account using PC. And this can be done with your email and password.
If you’re using your PC as a means of accessing your account, and you want to delete it using the device, follow the steps below:
- What you need to do at first is to go to your profile by clicking on your name located at the top left corner of the screen.
- Then go to Settings which is located at the top right corner of the Account screen.
