How To Delete A GroupMe Account On Android
Last Updated: September 10, 2020
GroupMe is a popular group messaging platform from Microsoft. It is available on iOS, Android, Windows, and the web. While the app is pretty good, it doesn’t suit the taste of some people. If you’re one of them, or you prefer to use other apps like Viber and Slack, here’s a quick guide on how to delete your GroupMe account using your Android device.
I think we can all agree that nowadays, most of us prefer to chat instead of using SMS. Messaging platforms are convenient to use and have more features when you compare it to SMS.
These platforms offer their messaging to clients mostly for free and without any hassle. All you need to do is create an account, log in, and you’re good to go. Some chat apps even allow you to connect your email for easy registration.
GroupMe is one of those popular messaging platforms. It is simple and easy to use, especially if the client is in an educational setting. With the app, you can chat a group of people and assign small work to people.
However, we understand that the messaging service is not for everyone. Whether the features don’t satisfy you, or you’re taking a break from chat apps, you can quickly delete your account and cut all ties to the app. You can even go the extra mile and uninstall the app on your Android device.
To help you, we have here a quick step-by-step guide on how to do all of that on your Android phone.
Delete Your Account Using the Mobile App
To proceed, make sure that you know your password. If you’re having trouble remembering, use the “forgot password?” feature and check your email to create a new one.
- Open your GroupMe app.
- Log in to your account.
- Tap the Menu on the upper left corner of your screen.
- Tap your name or picture to open the Profile page.
- Select the Edit icon.
- Tap “Delete GroupMe account.”
- Select Continue. Enter your password and tap Continue once again.
Note: You have 48 hours to cancel the deletion, in case you change your mind. Check your email or SMS inbox for a message from Microsoft or log in to GroupMe to get your account back.
How to Uninstall GroupMe on Android
After you delete your account, you might want to uninstall the mobile app as well. You can save some memory on your device if you delete apps that you no longer have any plans of using.
We suggest waiting for 48 hours before you completely uninstall GroupMe.
Follow these steps below:
- Open Settings.
- Tap Apps.
- Scroll down and select GroupMe.
- Tap Uninstall.
- Tap OK to confirm your decision.
Note: This process may differ slightly depending on your phone and Android version.
You can also go to your apps drawer, tap and hold the GroupMe icon, and uninstall it from there.
Now that you don’t have a GroupMe account anymore, you can try other similar platforms with different features. If you don’t have anything specific on your mind, we can help you with that.
If you’re looking for an app where you can talk with your friends, send stickers, create group chats, and take video calls, check out Viber and Telegram. The latter even has a feature where your message can self-destruct or automatically delete itself after some time.
On the other hand, Slack is perfect for work or business. With their channels, you can share information, create plans, or ask questions with your team faster.
In the end, GroupMe is still a decent group messaging app that a lot of people use, especially those in an educational setting. However, we understand that the platform isn’t for everyone.
Whether GroupMe doesn’t suit your taste, or you prefer another messaging app like it, there’s nothing wrong with deleting your account. All you have to do is open the mobile app, head over to your profile, and delete it from there.
Still, you have up to two days to change your mind before Microsoft deletes your account permanently. Just log in to the app, or check the latest message from GroupMe on your email or inbox to get your account back.
