How do I delete my VSCO Account?

At VSCO, it’s important that you have ownership of your creative journey, which includes controlling your content and your data.

To help you maintain that ownership of your data, we offer the options to download, correct, or delete your information.  

The fastest way to delete your VSCO account is by deleting the account yourself. We encourage you to follow the steps below to delete your account yourself before contacting Support. 

 

IMPORTANT:

 

Please read this article carefully and entirely to ensure you understand how you can delete your data from VSCO. 

If you’d like to delete your data, you have the option to delete your account. Once you submit your deletion request, it may take several hours to fully delete your data. During this time, your account may still be publicly viewable.

Please note that deleting your account includes deletion of your images, and mobile and desktop purchases. Once your account has been deleted, you won’t be able to reactivate your account or retrieve anything. Deleting your VSCO account cannot be undone. 
 
For VSCO Members:
Deleting your VSCO account will not automatically cancel your VSCO Membership as subscriptions are handled by Apple and Google. To cancel your VSCO Membership, please see our article. 

If you’d prefer to keep your content and data on VSCO, you can deactivate your account by following the instructions here.

Please note that we may be unable to immediately delete certain types of personal information due to regulatory or legal requirements. This information will be deleted in accordance with our policies. 
 

Account Deletion Process

1. Sign into the account you wish to delete on vsco.co in a web browser such as Chrome, Safari either on your mobile device or a desktop/laptop computer and sign into the same account on your VSCO mobile app.
 
2. When you sign into vsco.co in a web browser, this registers as a new device and you will be sent a verification email to the email associated with your VSCO account. You must verify log in from the email that was sent to you before you can proceed with deleting your VSCO account, otherwise you will encounter an error. Note to Gmail users: This email could arrive in the 'Promotions' tab. Note to all email users: check your spam folder if you don't see the verification email in your inbox. Please note it could take between 5-10 minutes for this email verification to arrive in your inbox.
