What Happens Once You Delete Your Yelp Account?

  • Any reviews you have written or photos you have uploaded will ultimately be lost. But it will take some time (and Yelp won’t tell you how much time exactly it will take). This means that if you need your Yelp reviews or pictures to be instantly deleted, you need to remove them manually prior to deleting your account.

To instantly remove your Yelp content (public reviews and photos):

  • Login to your Yelp account
  • Click “About me” under your profile pic
  • Click “Reviews” to the left
  • Use the “Delete” icon to delete any reviews, one by one

Yelp does not offer a bulk deletion feature.

If you have written numerous reviews and don’t want to be linked with them, editing your profile before deleting it may be a workaround. Do this by removing your profile picture and changing your name. This will immediately alter how your current reviews look:

Anonymize ALL of your Yelp reviews right away before you delete your account. It will be more difficult to link your reviews to you in this manner.
